With Harry Kane setting new standards for Premier League goalscoring brilliance and Harry Winks settling into Premier League midfield life like he was born for it, the focus is once again on the flourishing Tottenham academy.

Spurs are reaping the rewards of a successful youth set-up not only in terms of first-team results, but also in making the club considerable profit.

The internal production line has allowed Danny Rose to develop into England’s outstanding left-back and also kickstarted the careers of the likes of Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason, Tom Carroll and Andros Townsend, who were all sold for multi-million pound fees in the last 18 months.

With a manager in Mauricio Pochettino who has a stellar reputation for giving opportunities to the best home-grown talent, all eyes are now on the next generation of up-and-coming Tottenham stars.

Who can follow Kane and Winks from the academy into the first-team squad? Who has got what it really takes to be a Tottenham first teamer of the future?

Pochettino has quietened the noise around Marcus Edwards by making the stunning revelation in his new book that the attacking midfielder must overcome serious “behavioural problems” if he is to make it as a professional.

This Is Futbol details three young guns with the jump on Edwards, who are destined for the first team sooner rather than later, including a 16-year-old whose composure makes Winks look like a bundle of nerves.
