The Irish striker joined Tottenham as an academy player in 2017 and signed his first professional contract with the club in 2019.

“I’d love for Troy to get a chance in pre-season to impress Postecoglou after such a big year in his development. My gut feeling at this point though is that Spurs will look to cash in on his impressive season and insert a sell-on clause or buy-back option in case he continues to shine”

Alasdair Gold, Tottenham Hotspur correspondent, shared his view through Football London. The journalist also said, “It is his dream to make it for Spurs” so from these words, it is clear that the player needs to stay at the N17 for the upcoming season.

Postecoglou will also consider Pattrott as a primary option for the club, as he has one more season contract with the North London club. Also, his recent form with both Rotterdam and the Irish national team increases his chances of remaining in the Spurs squad. Spurs also try to cash in the player if he is not included in the Aussie tactician’s plan. Postecoglou is strengthening his squad with new changes, and his primary focus will be the new frontline for the Lillywhites.
