Over the course of the summer, Spurs brought in two talented young players in the shape of Cristian Ceballos and Souleymane Coulibaly to compliment the exceptional crop of youngsters that are already at the club.
There are suggestions today that the club is looking abroad once again and this time they are heading to Holland and Belgium in the hope of luring some of Europe’s top talent.
The first, Ola John, is a Liberian born Dutch qualified player currently at FC Twente. So little is known about him that conflicting stories describe him either as a winger, or an out and out striker.
John is just 19 and has made 25 league appearances for Twente’s first team to date while having also debuted for the Dutch under 19 set up. It’s thought that a figure of £4m has been quoted and that seems a little high for someone with so little first team experience.
Elsewhere, 21 year old Belgian midfielder Omar El Kaddouri is supposedly the subject of a £1.5m approach. Despite his age, the player has made little headway at his current Serie B club and if he does sign, it is to be hoped that he is something of a late developer.
