Youngsters Complete Moves To White Hart Lane
Twist Or Stick: Pochettino has warned that change is coming at WHL
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has started to come good on his promise to fans regarding developing young talent at the club, bringing in two highly-rated youngsters: 18 year-old Humam Tariq joins from Iraqi side Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya for £350k, and Argentinian striker Lucas Boye joins from River in a deal which could be worth up to £5.75m. Below, we analyse the two players, and their first-team prospects.

Despite not having scored any club goals, Tariq has 3 international goals in 5 appearances, and is one of the Middle East’s brightest talents. Primarily playing behind the striker, the 18 year old’s Vision and Decision-making are two of his greatest assets, making him invaluable to his national side.
In terms of first team chances this season, they may be few and far between for the youngster, but under the guidance of players like Erik Lamela, he is only going to grow in stature.

Already a hit with Tottenham’s female fans, the 18 year old Striker looks to have a bright future ahead of him. Spotted by scouts while playing for River’s reserve team, and their eye was caught by his pace and eye for goal - two skills which will be massive assets in England.
While he’s not quite ready for first-team football, Boye is sure to have a bright future ahead of him. His development is one that the Spurs fans will be watching with interest.
Speaking this morning, Pochettino was quick to praise his new stars, and spoke briefly of his plans for them.
”I’m very pleased that we have secured two very bright talents in world football. Both players I hope will have big futures at the club, however their development will be carefully monitored by our staff. We will not throw them in at a level they are not comfortable with - loan moves may be a possibility for both players, and that is something we will asses in due course.”
