The Portuguese boss even compared Scarlett to Marcus Rashford.
“He is a striker, a number nine, I have been playing him from the sides similar to Marcus Rashford and he is very clever,” he added.
Now, Tottenham will not ask a 17-year-old to come in as a ready-made replacement for Kane.
However, he is so highly thought of that Spurs have been tipped, as proven by Mourinho, to bring him into the first team set up next season permanently.
He is the second-youngest player ever to play in a senior match for Tottenham and also made his Premier League debut at the tail-end of last season against West Brom.
Spurs might not have a replacement for Kane, but they might have a new Kane on their hands.
