Ever since Mauricio Pochettino arrived at the club two years ago, there has been an emphasis on youth development at Tottenham.
Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason have all played plenty of minutes under Pochettino, while a new group of youngsters, including Harry Winks and Cameron Carter-Vickers, look set to play intermittently this season.
And it appears Spurs are looking to add more young players to their youthful squad.
TalkSport believes Spurs could pursue Charlton Athletic striker Ademola Lookman before tonight’s transfer deadline.

Lookman, 18, is also attracting the interest of Crystal Palace, who have reportedly bid £4 million for the young forward. West Brom are keeping an eye on the situation, too.
Arsenal and Southampton were said to be keen earlier in the transfer window, but it seems their interest has cooled, leaving Tottenham, Palace and West Brom to fight it out for the striker.
Lookman scored Charlton’s equaliser in the club’s League One clash with Bolton last weekend, and his current employers are keen for him to stay until January at least.
