Tottenham Hotspur might have a successful summer transfer window but Mauricio Pochettino has always been very active whenever it comes to encouraging new talents. He has been pretty successful in doing that as the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Winks have emerged as the new stars in the Premier League.
The North Londoners have a very talented crop of youngsters who could take the mantle forward in near future. Tottenham are reportedly interested in Hamburg youngster Jean Fiete Arp. The talented forward has been one of the most sensational youngsters to have emerged from the German soil and has already lit up the European soil with his brilliant goal scoring record.
Fiete Arp hogged the limelight with his impressive display in the U17 World Cup in India. The German teenager netted five goals in five matches en route to the quarterfinals where they lost at the hands of Brazil.
Despite Germany’s early exit the talented youngster has triggered interest among a number of heavyweight clubs and Spurs are leading the line. Touted to be the next big thing in German football, he could be a good investment for the North Londoners. Pochettino has been building a squad of ambitious youngsters and the 17-year-old could be a part of that in the near future.
Chelsea were very much interested to bring in the player but he humbly turned down the lucrative move, as he thought it could curtail his football career. “It won’t make any sense to leave my team and move abroad at the moment. I hardly achieved anything and have virtually no experience in professional football.”
Germany hasn’t seen a player of his calibre in a long time and if he is given a good run of games, it would take very little time for him to burst into the senior set-up. A sharpshooter and a cool finisher, he is fast becoming a hot favourite among the Hamburger SV fans in the Bundesliga this season.
He has all the quality attributes to become a huge success on the English soil as well. He is hardworking, knows the pros and cons of being a centre-forward, has a brilliant technique and most importantly is well acquainted with the art of scoring.
However, he is unlikely to be given a straight jump to the Premier League if he does arrive at Spurs and will be inducted into the academy. Spurs will have to act quickly as there is a strong possibility of the player leaving the German club with his contract due to expire in 2019.
