Tottenham Hotspur may be in the market for a new right-back in the near future, as they remain short in that position within the current squad following the summer departure of Kieran Trippier.
Serge Aurier currently occupies the first-team position, but has been known to be a liability in defence and operates best as a wing-back.
Kyle Walker-Peters has struggled to break into the side under the last two managers in North London and now looks set to join Crystal Palace on loan for the rest of the season (Daily Mail).
However, Spurs are reportedly now looking at the Middlesbrough right-back, Djed Spence, as a possible investment for the future (Standard).
The 19-year-old was part of the team that drew to Spurs in the FA Cup, forcing a replay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in mid-January.
He only broke into the first-team recently, but has just 18-months left on a youth team contract, meaning the door could be open for a sale if he does not renew.
Spurs are said to be tracking him, while Middlesbrough want to offer a new five-year deal.
