Who’s this 17-year-old wonderkid touted to become the next Tottenham superstar? All you need to know

Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Tottenham’s Next Potential Superstar – Reo Griffiths

Tottenham Hotspur are renowned for producing some of the finest youth stars and in keeping tune with that tradition, there is a teen sensation from their esteemed academy, who’s making his presence felt. Reo Griffiths has been in spectacular form this season and has earned quite a lot of attention and praise from a lot of people. The striker has done admirably well in Scott Parker’s U18 side and is earmarked for a bright future.

While there is no doubt that Spurs have unearthed a gem of a player in the form of Griffiths, let’s take a closer look at his profile.

History

Born in 2000 in London, England, Griffiths embarked on his football career as a youth player for Leyton Orient. His impressive performances helped him progress through the ranks, which eventually attracted attention from London powerhouse side Tottenham Hotspur.

The young star completed the switch and started playing for Spurs’ youth academy. His blistering pace and goalscoring skills helped him edge past competition and he has been putting in some stunning displays for the U18 side.

In fact, he has already scored 20 goals this season and is most famous for scoring an amazing hattrick in a game against North London rivals Arsenal. In addition to that, Griffiths has also appeared for the England U17 side.

Playing Style

As a striker, Griffiths is known for his blistering pace and power up front. He is quite attack-oriented and is blessed with quick feet, meaning he finds it relatively easy to surge ahead of opponent defenders and capitalise even on the smallest of gaps. The youngster is quite adaptable as well and can change his style to suit the situation at hand. Adept with the ball at his feet, the 17-year-old can work well during aerial challenges as well.

However, there have been times when his decision-making has cost him in the final third and a few of his touches can be erratic. That said, he has a long way to go before developing himself into a finished product.

Griffiths’ Future

With so much attention and praise under his belt already, Griffiths is undoubtedly on the verge of becoming Tottenham’s next big superstar. In fact, he has already attracted attention from a few potential suitors but at present, it would probably be better for him to stay put with the London-based outfit. He needs to focus on developing and improving his natural skills to get to the next level and moving to a different club now could hamper his growth.
