Tottenham Hotspur may be in the market for a new right-back in the summer, a position that has proved problematic for some time now.

Spurs arguably peaked when they had Kyle Walker on the right side of defence, before selling him and allowing Kieran Trippier the chance to step up and impress.

Similarly, after Tripps was sold to Atletico Madrid last summer, Spurs put faith in understudy Serge Aurier instead of signing a new player.

Aurier has shone at right-wing-back this season, but often struggles when asked to play in a flat back four with more emphasis on defending.

Milan Live have now reported that AC Milan right-back Davide Calabria is available for just £11m. This comes after Spurs were linked with the 23-year-old back in April 2019 (CalcioMercato).

Calabria has played a total of 99 games for Milan since breaking through the ranks in the 2014/15 campaign. He has played 14 matches this season for the Italian side (Wikipedia).

Spurs Web Opinion:

I would argue that Tottenham may need two new right-backs this summer, especially if Aurier and Walker-Peters are sold. While Calabria would not be a consistent started for me, £11m is a good price for an understudy.
