“Get him on the bench for Palace”: Several Tottenham fans want young starlet in the first-team after impressive showing for U21 side

Several Tottenham fans want Troy Parrott to play for the first-team

Tottenham have seen several young players come through the youth teams in recent years and make a name for themselves.

Harry Kane and Harry Winks are the obvious candidates from this team while Dele Alli had tons of potential when he arrived from MK Dons.

Kyle Walker-Peters is also getting regular games after the exit of Kieran Trippier, while Oliver Skipp has received a few minutes this season.

There is another youngster who seems set to make a name for himself soon, Troy Parrott. The 17-year-old travelled with the first-team for the Asia tour this summer and was in action for Ireland’s U21 side.

The Irish played Armenia in a U21 Euro qualifier and Parrott scored the winner.

Credit has to be given to the build-up play for the goal but Parrott was in the right position to slam home the winner on his debut.

Tottenham could turn to Parrott this season

Spurs didn’t sign a replacement for Fernando Llorente and we don’t have recognised cover for Harry Kane after Vincent Janssen was sold too.

Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura can play up front, but Parrott should feature in some of the cup games for us this season.

The youngster has tons of potential and many Tottenham fans wanted to see more of the striker in a Spurs shirt.

Tottenham eyeing Celta Vigo winger Brais Mendez and Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrino

Tottenham are interested in Celta Vigo’s 22-year-old winger Brais Mendez (h/t Guardian). The Spaniard has featured in 13 La Liga games for Celta Vigo this season but has no goals or assists.

Mendez had a better season last time around as he racked up 6 goals and 7 assists from 31 La Liga games.

The youngster has also played for the senior Spanish national team and scored the winner on his debut against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Mendez has featured in several youth Spanish teams and started his career with Sardoma. He then moved to Santa Marina and Villarreal before landing up at Vigo. The 22-year-old mostly plays on the right of the attack but can also take up the role of a midfielder.

Lorenzo Pellegrini also an option for Spurs

The Guardian adds that Spurs are also keeping an eye on Lorenzo Pellegrini of AS Roma. The 23-year-old has featured for the Italian senior side this season and has done well there.

Pellegrini plays mostly on the left but can also do a job in the midfield. The 23-year-old has four assists from six Serie A games, and it will be interesting to see if we move for either player in the coming months.

Tottenham have several players in the final months of their contracts and we could lose them for nothing at the end of the campaign.

Mendez and Pellegrini have a lot of potential and we could do with some more fresh faces joining us.

Tottenham see Hakim Ziyech as Christian Eriksen’s replacement

Tottenham want to sign Ajax star Hakim Ziyech as Christian Eriksen’s replacement, according to the Express.

Ziyech helped Ajax reach the semi-finals of the Champions League last season. Tottenham also got a close look at the player during the semi-final as we beat them.

The 26-year-old Morocco international has been in decent form too. Ziyech has 6 goals and 11 assists in all competitions for Ajax and impressed in the 4-4 draw against Chelsea.

The Moroccan bagged two assists in that Champions League game and has been involved in six goals in his past four outings.

Eriksen missing in action

Eriksen, for his part, hasn’t been as prolific as Ziyech this season. The Dane is out of a contract at the end of the campaign and only has two goals to his name in all competitions.

The report claims that Eriksen could leave in January or at the end of the season, and Spurs have identified his successor. Eriksen didn’t even come off the bench in our 1-1 draw against Sheffield United at the weekend.

The former Ajax man isn’t the only one who hasn’t done well this season, but we could do with more creativity in the final third. Ziyech can play in several positions and has been in good form for Ajax over the past few years.

The Moroccan was involved in 29 league goals last season and 24 goals in the season prior to that.

Ziyech is capable of playing for most top teams in the world, and it will be interesting to see if we make a serious move for him soon.

Tottenham to bid £50m for 25-year-old Ligue 1 star with Premier League experience

Tottenham to bid £50m for Lyon star Memphis Depay

Tottenham are ready to bid £50million for former Manchester United star Memphis Depay, according to the Mirror.

The Dutch attacker struggled at Old Trafford after joining from PSV Eindhoven (h/t Mirror) and was sent out on loan to Lyon initially.

Depay did well there and moved permanently to the Ligue 1 club. The 25-year-old’s career has been revitalised since his move to France and he is a regular for the Dutch national team these days.

The attacker has scored 12 times for Lyon this season and is capable of playing anywhere across the front line.

Tottenham scouting Depay

Spurs are one of the clubs interested in the Dutchman and have scouted the 25-year-old during the two Champions League clashes between Lyon and Benfica (h/t Mirror).

The report claims that Spurs also got a chance to watch Depay’s teammate Moussa Dembele, however, the Dutch attacker is their main target for the moment.

United do have a buy-back clause in Depay’s contract and the report claims that his asking price would have increased a lot from the £15m Lyon paid to land him initially.

Tottenham didn’t buy any all-out attackers during the summer, with Ryan Sessegnon the only one who can play wide. There is no senior cover for Harry Kane either, and it will be interesting to see if we move for Depay.

Spurs have been struggling for form this season and their last match ended in a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United.

Manchester United enter talks to sign Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen

Manchester United have opened negotiations to sign Christian Eriksen in the January transfer window, according to El Desmarque (h/t Express).

The 27-year-old Dane is a free agent at the end of the season and could leave for nothing in the summer.

Eriksen only has two goals to his name this season for us and was on the bench in our 1-1 draw with Sheffield United on Saturday.

The report claims that United tried to sign Eriksen during the summer. However, the Dane rebuffed advances from them as he wanted to play for Real Madrid (h/t Express).

The Dane has now given up on playing for Los Galacticos and United will try to land him in January (h/t Express).

The Red Devils will place a £42million bid for the Tottenham star in hopes of signing him before the summer window (h/t Express).

Tottenham in a tough position

Getting £42m for a player who is in the last six months of his contract would be a great deal for Tottenham. Eriksen just hasn’t clicked into gear this season and making some money during the winter window would be quite a wise move.

However, landing a replacement wouldn’t be easy in January and we could do with some fresh faces in the team. Giovani Lo Celso started his second game of the season against Sheffield United and could fill the gap left by Eriksen.
