Alasdair Gold Says Tottenham Have A Lot of Hope for Teenage Attacker


Tottenham Hotspur are brimming with young talent, with several players already making waves and others waiting in the wings.

Pape Sarr and Destiny Udogie have become key players for the first team, showcasing their abilities on the biggest stage. Meanwhile, Archie Gray and Lucas Bergvall are exciting summer additions with the potential to be brilliant for Spurs.

The talent pool doesn’t stop there. Promising youngsters like Jamie Donley and Mikey Moore are rising stars within the Spurs academy, tipped for greatness by many.

In a recent appearance on the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast, journalist Alasdair Gold shed light on Will Lankshear’s development and his standing within the academy.

According to Gold, manager Ange Postecoglou is a fan of Lankshear, but the young striker hasn’t yet broken into the first-team picture like some of his peers.

“It’s interesting with Will Lankshear,” Gold said. “I think Ange likes him, but not to the degree where he’s really got him involved yet. He hasn’t been training with the senior squad as much as the other young players.”

Gold believes Lankshear needs a turning point to impress the manager. “He just needs something to go his way,” Gold continued. “Whether it’s training with Ange and showing there’s more to his game, I think he has to do something more to catch Ange’s eye.”

Despite the lack of first-team involvement, Gold assures there’s optimism surrounding Lankshear within the academy. “There’s a lot of hope for him in the academy as well,” he concluded.
