Australian youngster Massimo Luongo says he is trying to emulate Tottenham teammate Scott Parker.

The 20-year old, currently on loan with League One outfit Swindon Town, is planning to return to White Hart Lane in the summer and push for a first team spot with Spurs next season or elsewhere on loan if he can’t break in.

“Hopefully the next thing I can accomplish is to get in to the first team squad with Tottenham," he told SBS.

“I know the sort of player I want to be and the closest to that at Spurs is Scott Parker. I like to think of myself as good on the ball, tidy and responsible in possession … a really busy type of player.

“I have good relationship with Tim Sherwood (Tottenham’s technical director) and I am established in his eyes. The challenge now is to push onto the next level, whether that’s with Spurs or even elsewhere.”
