The 17-year-old striker is now the most youthful player to address Spurs in the Premier League having been tipped for the top by Jose Mourinho
Given the effect Harry Kane has had on Tottenham lately, Spurs fans can be excused for the frenzy they have exhibited as of late.
Kane’s expected takeoff from the north London outfit would probably have destroying ramifications for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, who as of now end up on something of a descending direction following the fervor of Mauricio Pochettino’s residency in control.
Since arising out of the Tottenham institute around 10 years prior, Kane has formed into one of the game’s most dreaded number nines, with his capacity to get done with the two feet, and from practically any distance or point, practically unequaled in the cutting edge game.

Factor in his steadily working on all-round game, which saw him finish last season’s Premier League as the player with most objectives and helps, and it is difficult to contend with a portion of the costs that are being cited at whatever point a transition to Manchester City is spoken about.
Thus while Spurs fans keep on floundering in the mistake of Kane’s apparently approaching way out, sooner or later they should begin looking towards what’s to come.
The uplifting news for them is that later on, there is an extremely impressive chance that another local striker will have accepted the responsibility from Kane and become one of the English game’s most interesting assaulting whizzes.
That is a ton to lay on the shoulders of Dane Scarlett, who just turned 17 in March and has only three senior appearances to his name.
In any case, if the forward can reproduce the structure he has displayed at youth level in the expert game, then, at that point both Tottenham and England could have another uncommon player on their hands.
“Tottenham Hotspur have a striker in Dane Scarlett, who, if everything works out positively, will be remarkable,” ex-Spurs supervisor Jose Mourinho disclosed to The Times while examining the eventual fate of the Three Lions following Euro 2020, and however Mourinho just tracked down that out in the course of recent months, those at Tottenham have thought about Scarlett’s potential for some time.
Brought into the world in the west London district of Hillingdon, Scarlett joined Spurs as a six-year-old, and split time between preparing with the club and learning at The Harefield Academy, a school which offers a soccer grant to its understudies and whose most well known previous student is Jadon Sancho, who invested energy there while on the books at Watford.
Scarlett traveled his direction through the different age bunches at Tottenham, prior to making his Under-18s debut at 15 years old around the beginning of the 2019-20 mission.
He oversaw only four appearances at that level, in any case, as a genuine knee injury experienced in November 2019 against Chelsea saw him go through season-finishing a medical procedure.

That is an intense hit to take for a player of all ages, however especially an adolescent whose fast advancement confronted being slowed down significantly by the difficulty.
Scarlett, however, was obviously quick to get the ball really rolling upon his return and, having spent pieces of pre-season with the primary group crew, set about compensating for some recent setbacks at youth level.
For the U18s he scored 12 objectives and laid on four aids his initial 11 rounds of the 2020-21 season, including a four-objective salvo against Southampton in late November and a further full go-around against Crystal Palace fourteen days after the fact.
In the middle, he likewise made his senior introduction – falling off the seat in the end phases of an Europa League conflict against Ludogorets to turn into Tottenham’s most youthful ever player at 16 years old years and 247 days.
That record just represented only weeks, nonetheless, with individual youth Alfie Devine having since become the two Spurs’ most youthful player and goalscorer after he tracked down the net against non-alliance Marine in the FA Cup in January.
Scarlett does, in any case, actually hold one club record, having become Tottenham’s most youthful at any point Premier League player when he showed up against West Brom in February, matured 16 years and 320 days.
“As far as I might be concerned, the inclination of the child coming on implies a great deal for the institute, implies [a lot] for the child since he is 16, and means [a lot] to me since I needed to be the one to put him on in a Premier League match, since I realize that he will be someone in a couple of years,” were the expressions of Mourinho present match on BBC Radio 5 Live, and that would not be the last time the Portuguese waxed melodious about Scarlett’s latent capacity.
“He is a jewel, a child with mind blowing potential,” Mourinho disclosed to BT Sport in February 2021. “He has worked commonly with the primary group and that gives him an alternate character.
“I accept next season he will be a first-group crew player, since he has a great deal of ability. He will be an incredible player and I trust everything around him works out in a good way.
“He is a striker, a number nine, however I have been playing him from the sides like Marcus Rashford, and he is extremely shrewd.”
“He has monstrous ability,” he proceeded. “I trust that nothing will annihilate that potential. He should have (his) feet on the ground and (a decent) head on his shoulders, since he has an awesome ability.”
Mourinho, obviously, will have nothing to do with whether Scarlett makes certain about a steady spot in the Tottenham first group this season, with the choice passed on to his replacement in Nuno.
Surely the previous Wolves supervisor will have noticed Scarlett’s last numbers from last season as he finished up the mission with 25 objectives in only 24 games for the club’s U23s and U18s groups, which remembered five objectives for a 6-2 success over Newport County in the FA Youth Cup.

The England youth worldwide outlined to his new administrator that his scoring contact had not abandoned him in pre-season when tracking down the net in an agreeable against Leyton Orient in July, as Spurs kept on adjusting in front of their Premier League opener against Man City on Sunday.
With Kane’s accessibility for that game as yet unclear, quite possibly Scarlett will be included, regardless of whether not from the beginning.

Ardiles trusting Kane stays at Spurs for quite a while
“He is a characteristic finisher and that is something incredibly, hard to instruct,” ex-club commander Ledley King disclosed to Spurs TV. “He’s recently got that eye for the objective, feels comfortable around the container and he has two amazing feet. He truly strikes a ball well off the two feet. He has incredible apparatuses and he’s a reasonable kid.”
Without setting, that could be a portrayal ascribed to Kane himself, and that is the reason so many trust Scarlett can be the England skipper’s drawn out substitution at Tottenham.
Thus while Kane is indispensable now, there is some expectation that in five years’ time, his leave will be viewed as having opened the entryway for Spurs’ next extraordinary number nine to succeed.
