Brentford’s loan star Alex Pritchard should be confident he can break into the first team at Tottenham next season, after impressing Mauricio Pochettino in recent weeks.
The eccentric midfielder has really benefited from the loan system and has developed having already spent a season at Swindon last season, before strutting his stuff at Griffin Park this campaign.
Pritchard has been performing well for the Bees throughout the season and this has not gone unnoticed as Pochettino has recently praised him.
Pritchard can operate anywhere as an attacking midfielder, whether that be on either wing or behind the striker, and this versatility will really boost his chances in the first team.
The 21-year-old has really earned his stripes in the Football League but he will have a lot to learn if he is to play in Pochettino’s high pressing system.
But Spurs may have a job on their hands of keeping him at White Hart Lane, because he has picked up a lot of interest following his good form in the Championship.
With top-flight relegation fighters, Queens Park Rangers, keeping tabs on him, Pritchard may opt for first team football.
After all combining his previous two loan spells, he has started 72 games overall, so he may not be in a mindset to bide his time outside of the starting eleven at Spurs.
