Some fans are convinced 19-year-old would be a better option for Spurs than Aarons


Some Spurs fans on social media have urged the club to snap up Tariq Lamptey from Brighton this summer on the back of the right-back’s impressive showing since the restart.

Lamptey, who came through Chelsea’s youth system, joined the Seagulls in the January transfer window.

The youngster has only made four Premier League appearances for Graham Potter’s side to date but has impressed both defensively as well as going forward (transfermarkt).

Signing a new right-back is reportedly one of Jose Mourinho’s priorities when the transfer window opens in the summer (Football Insider), with Norwich City’s Max Aarons being one of the names heavily linked with the North Londoners (The Athletic).

However, some Tottenham fans are convinced that Lamptey would be a much better addition instead of the Canaries defender.

Not only did some feel that Lamptey would be a better fit for Jose Mourinho’s side than Aarons would be, but they also suggested that the Brighton man could be landed for a lower transfer fee.

Here’s how they reacted to the teenager’s recent displays:

Aarons started off the season in really good form but his performances have dropped off recently and he has been found wanting on a few occasions. The same might happen to Lamptey once he has a run of games under his belt. While the early signs are promising, it is hard to make a judgement based on just a few matches.
