Can This 20-year Old English Professional Be The Next Big Thing At Tottenham?

Published

on

Tottenham seem to have a factory of superstars coming from their academy. While Dele Alli didn’t really spend a lot of time in the youth setup, Harry Kane has been one of the stars to have stepped up with his stint in various other clubs.

Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb are a couple of other players who had broken into the first team recently, even Alex Pritchard and Josh Onomah is seen as the future for the side and the duo have had a few chances to impress in the first team this season.

Another player who seems to be set for big things is Nathan Oduwa, the 20-year-old joined the Tottenham youth system at the age of 11 and has not looked back ever since. The winger has spent a lot of time in other clubs on loan and his breakthrough performances came when he played for Rangers in the Scottish Championship.

The winger also spent some time at Luton Town and Colchester, more recently but he cancelled his loan deal with Colchester and moved back to Tottenham towards the end of the season. There are reports that Oduwa is set to decline a contract from Tottenham, even though he is being urged to sign one from his agent.

The reason behind this is that the player wants a guarantee or more first team football at a club which has grown leaps and bounds under Pochettino. The Argentine manager has seen one of the best Premier League campaigns in the history of the club and that has been achieved through the use of various young players.

Oduwa knows that players such as Pritchard and Onomah are ahead of him in the pecking order but he wants to show he too can make a difference for Tottenham next season, especially since they would be playing in the Champions League.

The 20-year-old mainly plays as a left winger but can also be slotted on the other side of the team. He is a tricky customer to deal with and is one of those players who loves to use his trickery to beat the defence. That is an issue which does get him a lot of fouls from defenders but his inconsistency during his time at Rangers was another issue that he would have to work on.

Oduwa is known for his excellent ability out wide but his attitude could be a problem for now. Mauricio Pochettino does have a star in his hands but giving him a regular start in the club does seem to be a farfetched reality for Oduwa. The youngster would possibly be loaned out again if he does decide to stay at Spurs but that does seem highly unlikely as the Nigerian star wants to play regularly in the Premier League.
