If reports in the press are to be believed, Tottenham Hotspur are set to invest considerably into their squad this season after failing to sign a single player in the last two transfer windows (The Sun).

Among the positions where Tottenham are said to be keen on upgrades is in the right back position where the club are reportedly willing to listen to offers for both Kieran Tripper and Serge Aurier (Evening Standard).

One player who Spurs have been linked with is Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka who has taken the league by storm with his performances after breaking into the Palace team 

The Sun have reported previously that Manchester United have already had a bid of £40million rejected for the England Under-21 international 

Manchester United are certainly ahead of Spurs in the race for the England Under-21 international having already had a bid of £40million rejected (Sky Sports) with their reporter Kaveh Solhekol claiming that Palace value the player up to £70million.

The Mail claim that should United decide that a move for Wan-Bissaka is not feasible they will turn their attention to Kieran Trippier, who has certainly had a season to forget in North London.

There is no doubt that Wan-Bissaka will be a perfect fit for Pochettino’s system and his ability to get up and down the pitch for 90 mins is something that Tottenham have missed since Kyle Walker departed the club two years ago.

However, given the price that Palace are demanding, the Lilywhites might be tempted to go for someone like Max Aarons instead if Trippier does depart.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Spurs have two world class right backs coming through the youth system in Kyle Walker-Peters and young Timothy Eyoma . The problem is that in the last couple of seasons Potch has changed and has stopped trusting young players and is sniffing after a 29 years old Japanese RB. If Potch played the young lads he would find they are vastly superior to RM Trippier and loony Aurier and on a par with Wan Bassiaka and Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold whom Walker-Peters was ahead of in the England youth teams. Trust the kids and drop the loosers…
