As Tottenham prepares to face Fulham in an upcoming fixture, Jude Soonsup-Bell has been spotted in training, raising hopes of a potential debut under manager Ange Postecoglou.
Soonsup-Bell, who made the switch from Chelsea to Tottenham back in February, has yet to make an appearance for the senior Tottenham side. However, his recent performances in the youth leagues have been nothing short of impressive. With an impressive record of four goals in five Premier League 2 games this season and a striking two goals in a single game in the EFL Trophy, the young talent seems to be knocking on the first-team door.
Upon acquiring Soonsup-Bell’s services, Tottenham’s Managing Director of Football, Fabio Paratici, didn’t hold back on praising the youngster’s abilities, labeling him a “big talent.” This statement from Paratici only added to the growing excitement surrounding Soonsup-Bell’s potential.
Tottenham’s squad currently faces challenges due to a thin roster and several lingering injuries. In light of this, the opportunity for Soonsup-Bell to step onto the senior stage seems more plausible than ever. Not long ago, another academy gem, 18-year-old Jamie Donley, earned a spot in Postecoglou’s squad for a match against Liverpool. Although he didn’t get to feature on the pitch that day, this development was promising for Spurs’ fans, as it signifies a willingness to provide opportunities for young talents.
Ange Postecoglou’s reputation as a manager who fosters the growth and development of young players further raises hopes for Soonsup-Bell. The young striker must be keen to impress in Tottenham’s training sessions, knowing that this could be his moment to shine.
