Report: Spurs monitoring 6ft 5in defender

Mauricio Pochettino has watched his Tottenham Hotspur side concede ten goals in their last two matches.

With Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen both out of contract at the end of the season, Spurs could be about to lose two of their most experienced central defenders.

The potential departure of the Belgian pair would leave a huge void of the heart of the Spurs defence with Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth likely to have to step up.

Football Insider claim that Tottenham have been closely monitoring the progress of Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Willy Boly and are to continue their assessment in the upcoming months.

The 28-year-old is also said to have caught the eye of North London rivals Arsenal who are keen to add some extra defensive cover (The Sun).


At 6ft 5in, the Frenchman is a commanding figure at the back for Wolves but would be somewhat of a surprising move for Daniel Levy considering the fact that the defender is 29 in February which would reduce the club’s chances of ever selling him on for a profit.

Danny Rose admitted in the summer that the club tend to sell their players once they reach their late twenties (Sky Sports).
