Tottenham has sent out many developing players out on loan this season, and Jose Mourinho could have plenty of options in the future.
Tottenham are enjoying a spell of brilliance this season in the Premier League and other competitions under Jose Mourinho. But if you aren’t aware, there are some shining prospects from the north London side who are out on loan and are excelling. In fact, the Portuguese boss has been constantly monitoring these players along with his coaches. One of the main reasons for this scrutiny is the possibility of joining the future first team of Spurs.
Out of all the players out on loan, three important men have been classified on the top of the list. These stars have been marking their presence and are continuously improving at their respective clubs. Let’s take a look at the top three Tottenham players who could be called in by Mourinho for the first team next season.
Ryan Sessegnon (Hoffenheim)
The 20-year-old moved to Tottenham in the summer of 2019 from Fulham for £25 million. Sessegnon made an impression due to his promotion-winning performances for the Cottagers in the season 2017-18. But, the left-winger met with an unfortunate hamstring injury after his arrival at Spurs. Which consequently kept him out on the bench until November and he did not get enough playing time after that.
With only 12 major appearances in the 2019-20 season, he left for the Bundesliga club Hoffenheim. During his time at the German team, Sessegnon has racked 15 matches with two goals and two assists to his name. Moreover, the club also qualified to the last 32 for the Europa League after topping the Group L. Along with Sessegnon’s hard work, Hoffenheim reached to the second round of the German Cup. The England Under-21 star was also voted the November’s Player of the Month by the Hoffenheim supporters.
Juan Foyth (Villareal)
The 22-year-old Argentina international did not fit into Tottenham’s tactics after Mourinho’s arrival at the club. He, therefore, left for a one-year loan agreement to the La Liga side Villareal in October. With a new contract until 2023 with Spurs, Foyth seems to want to make his way back in the squad. However, the Spanish club reportedly has a buy-out option of €15 million for Foyth.
The Argentine has made eight appearances for the team in yellow shirts, with one goal and one assist. And even though he has not received enough playing time in the domestic league, he has triumphed in the cup competitions. Villareal finished top of Group I in the Europa League and made it to the second round of the Copa del Rey.
Oliver Skipp (Norwich)
Another youngster that could be on the radar of the Portuguese boss is the 20-year-old midfielder Skipp. He transferred to Norwich in the Championship in August after a frustrating situation at Tottenham. Up until today, Skipp has appeared 20 times for the Canaries making it to each and every league game in the starting XI. In addition to that, he was also named the Player of the Month in September.
As a matter of fact, Norwich head coach Daniel Farke believes that the young starlet could potentially become a future captain for Tottenham. Moreover, supporters of both the clubs have been admiring the talent of this England international on social media. Skipp though was not happy at the north London side due to lack of minutes on the field. But could make his way into Jose’s lineup after his return.
