Who is Troy Parrott?

Troy Parrott has been one of the top-rated youngsters in the Premier League since the start of the 2019-20 season. The Republic of Ireland forward has been a regular feature in the Spurs U-23 team but made his senior debut against Colchester in the FA Cup last year. With Harry Kane needing some back up in the striking department, Troy Parrott could be the perfect answer to Jose Mourinho's hunt for a striker. In addition to that, the Tottenham lad is still young and developing and could be the perfect successor to Harry Kane. Troy Parrott made his senior Republic of Ireland debut on 14 November 2019. He started in the 3–1 friendly win against New Zealand and providing an assist for Ireland's second goal of the game which was Sean Maguire's first international goal. Troy Parrott, who made his Premier League debut under manager José Mourinho, in a 5–0 win against Burnley, recently signed a three-year contract with Spurs. Will we see another 'Harry Kane' striker emerge from the Tottenham Hotspur academy?
