It has previously been reported that Jose Mourinho is targeting up to five new signings this summer, including a new right-back to add to his squad.
However, with Tottenham apparently short of transfer funds this summer due to the financial impact of the pandemic, the club have to be smart in the way they conduct their transfer business.
Football.London have now identified three quality right-back options that the Lilywhites can potentially sign on the cheap this summer.
They suggest that Spurs could raid Ligue 1 for either Metz’s Fabien Centonze or Marseille’s Bouna Sarr in the current transfer window.
While Centonze has made a fantastic impression in his first season in the French top-flight, Sarr is an experienced campaigner, having been a mainstay in Marseille’s backline for the majority of the past five years.
The report claims that the 28-year-old could be available for around £15million this summer as Marseille look to ease their financial owes.
It also suggested that Nottingham Forest’s Matty Cash could be a viable target for Spurs after Sabri Lamouchi’s side missed out on the playoffs.
Cash was arguably the stand out right-back in the Championship this season and it is claimed that he may be tempted by a move to the Premier League side this summer.

Matty Cash has certainly developed considerably this season and looks destined for a move to the Premier League in the future. However, there are still question marks over how he will fare in the top-flight. As we saw with Max Aarons this season, it is much harder to shine in the top flight as a full-back when one is up against top-quality wide players, who are also much better athletes than those in the Championship.
