Tottenham Hotspur have struggled to find a solution to their right back problem following the departure of Kieran Trippier.

The England international joined Atletico Madrid in the summer for an initial fee of £20million following a difficult season in North London in which he struggled with form and injury (Metro).

This season, Mauricio Pochettino has already played Kyle Walker-Peters, Davinson Sanchez, Moussa Sissoko and Serge Aurier at right-back with each failing to show that they are a long-term solution for the position.

Juan Foyth has been earmarked as a potential right-back for Mauricio Pochettino   (Guardian) but has yet to feature this season after suffering an ankle injury during a friendly against Bayern Munich.

The Mail report that Spurs are preparing to make a £10million approach for West Bromwich Albion’s Nathan Ferguson.

Scout from the North London side are said to have been left raving about the 19-year-old who can operate at both left-back or right-back.

Pochettino is said to have made a new right-back his priority, but could face competition from Crystal Palace who are looking to replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka following his move to Manchester United.

The Baggies are reported to be keen to tie highly-rated youngster down to a new deal with a five-year contract (Telegraph) to ward off interest.
