2. Josh Onomah
Onomah is another player who entered the campaign with high expectations. He seemed poised to make the transition from prospect to player after an encouraging 2015-16 campaign. Unfortunately, things just haven’t come together for the young Englishman.

It’s important to remember that he’s still just 19-years-old. Still, the fact that he’s only managed to find his way into five matches for a grand total of 18 minutes doesn’t bode well for his future at Spurs.
It won’t be at all surprising if some smaller Premier League club tries to swoop in and turn Onomah’s head. He could certainly earn significant playing time for a club in the bottom half of the table. It would be difficult to blame him for wanting to find that somewhere else.
While I’d prefer to see Onomah receive a quality loan, I have to acknowledge that a summer sale is a significant possibility. I’d hate to see Onomah go, but there doesn’t seem to be a real place for him at Spurs right now. For the right bid, Pochettino would be wise to let him develop elsewhere.
