Tottenham Hotspur have struggled at centre-back over the course of this latest campaign, with the likes of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld struggling to maintain their high standards.

While the Belgian duo have been one of the best partnerships in world football over the past few years, it appears their time at the top for Spurs may be coming to an end.

Both players are currently set to leave the club in 2020 as their contracts expire at the end of the season, which would leave the Lilywhites short in the centre of defence.

Davinson Sanchez, Juan Foyth, Japhet Tanganga, and Cameron Carter-Vickers offer a youthful quartet for the future, but could Spurs add another promising young defender to that list?

22-year-old Joe Gomez is said to be frustrated with life at Liverpool behind the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk, and Joel Matip (90 Mins).

The report states that he is open to a move back to his native London, with Arsenal and Spurs both interested in accommodating that move.

Gomez has 73 Liverpool appearances to his name (Wikipedia), but would he be a good signing for Spurs?

Spurs Web Opinion:

This would be an epic signing for Tottenham, coming just at the right time. While Liverpool have too much talent at the back to offer Gomez consistent minutes on the pitch, Spurs have openings at right-back and centre-back. A promising youngster who could be a great player.
