Giancarlo Gallifuoco wants to take the next step and prove his worth for Tottenham.
The 19-year old midfielder is preparing for the second season of his two-and-a-half-year deal with the North London club and is looking to show what he is capable of to eventually push for the Spurs first team.
"I am the kind of person who does not like to look too much into the future," Gallifuoco told SBS.
"I would much rather concentrate on my next step.
"I have played with the first team in a friendly against Enfield Town and I feel I have progressed to such an extent that I am a more reliable player.
"So if I keep working hard and well I feel like my chance will come this season. I hope so, anyway.
"Being in the squad for a competitive game would be a great step forward for me."
He added: "I feel very good and very happy at Tottenham.
"I consider myself a very lucky footballer to be at such a club. You get looked after very well here.
"It is hard to pinpoint one area but I feel that every part of my game has improved.
"I have trained many times with the first team under three of the best coaches in Europe so that has helped me a lot.
"So far this season I have trained as much with my group as with the first team.
"In fact I did two weeks of pre-season with the first team.
"And the good thing is that the coaches seem to be happy with me.”
