Pochettino’s record of youth development means Brewster should choose Spurs

North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal are in a transfer battle to sign Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster this summer, according to the Sun. 

What’s the story, then?

The Sun report that wonderkid Brewster is eligible for a first professional contract but is yet to sign one at Anfield as he seeks assurances over his prospects of progressing into the first team on Merseyside.

They claim that both Spurs and the Gunners are looking to take advantage of the fact that Brewster’s decision over his future will be informed by where he will be granted the greatest level of opportunity to play.

They also report that Brewster is Lond0n-born, which both clubs may use to their advantage as they look to gatecrash the contract which has been agreed in principle but not formally signed.

Brewster should choose Spurs

Arsene Wenger had a wonderful record of youth development but in recent years, the players he brought through had a habit of stagnating.

On the other side of town, Mauricio Pochettino has made young English talent the cornerstone of his revolution and opportunities would surely be greater at Spurs for Brewster.

Yes, they have England’s World Cup talisman Harry Kane, but the role of backup striker is very much up for grabs and bringing through a youth prospect is the best way to fill it.
