If reports are to be believed, Tottenham are set to invest heavily into their squad in the summer (Daily Mail), and right back seems to be one of the areas in which Mauricio Pochettino seeks upgrades (The Sun).

The position has been a problematic one for Spurs this season with Serge Aurier out injured for long spells and Kieran Trippier not being in the best of form.

Spurs have been linked with several full backs including Norwich City’s Max Aarons and Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Another right back who is gaining rave plaudits at the moment is former Spurs man Ryan Fredericks.

The 26-year-old who came through the Spurs academy has put in some terrific performances in the Premier League since moving to West Ham from Fulham last summer.

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks picked Fredericks in his team of the week and questioned why Spurs let him go in the first place.

In his BBC column, Crooks wrote, ” I mentioned this lad (Fredericks) in dispatches last week without selecting him in my team of the week.

“The former Tottenham trainee seems to be finding his feet at West Ham and making a name for himself at the same time.

“Fredericks was outstanding against Southampton. Every time the Hammers launched an attack, he seemed to be entering the frame in a desperate attempt to join it.

“The defender sees danger, is quick and has a sharp eye for goal. Makes you wonder why Spurs let him go.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Fredericks was only sold after Pochettino’s first season at Tottenham which means that the Argentine probably got a good look at him.

Spurs have been missing that dynamism from the right back position since Kyle Walker’s departure, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka seems like the perfect candidate to fill that hole.
