Despite the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, and Danny Rose having stellar seasons last time out, Spurs were let down by their right-backs throughout the campaign.
Trippier hit career highs for England in the World Cup in Russia, but came tumbling down to a season full of mistakes, injuries, and fatigue.
Serge Aurier continued to prove that he too can be defensively naive, while picking up injury problems of his own.
Even young Kyle Walker-Peters made an almost catastrophic error at the Nou Camp in the Champions League, although he is still relatively young and inexperienced.
It is no surprise that Spurs have been linked with Crystal Palace wonderkid Aaron Wan-Bissaka then, as the 21-year-old enjoyed an incredible season with the Eagles (Sun).
A report from Sky Sports now claims that offers will have to exceed £50m for Palace to consider them this summer.
Spurs Web Opinion:
This confuses me. Spurs had one clear and obvious shortcoming last season, and that was in the right-back berth. If they had the same winning mentality as Liverpool they would go out and spend money on a first-team replacement, as the Reds did with Alisson and Van Dijk. In my mind, £50m is a bargain for Wan-Bissaka, as I believe he will be the next big thing.
