It is not often that most Spurs fans on social media tend to agree with each other when it comes to transfer speculation but it looks as if that might be the case when it comes to the rumours linking Tottenham to Matt Doherty.

Spurs have understandably been linked with several right-backs this summer, with Serge Aurier reportedly set to follow Kyle Walker-Peters out of the club (Corriere della Sera via Sport Witness).

Names like Max Aarons (Athletic), Timothy Castagne (ESPN), and Zeki Celik (Le10sport) have been mentioned as targets for Tottenham over the past few months.

However, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold claimed on Tuesday that the club had turned their attentions to Wolves’ Doherty.

Gold claimed that Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the 28-year-old Wolves defender and believes he would be the perfect fit for Spurs’ system.

He suggested that the Lilywhites were hoping to snap up the Republic of Ireland international for around £12million this summer.

The reaction from some Spurs fans in social media seemed to be unanimously in favour of signing the 28-year-old, with many believing that Doherty would be a considerable upgrade over Aurier.

Spurs Web Opinion

While some have pointed out that Doherty’s defending can leave a lot to be desired, I am not sure that will be as big an issue for us as it is for Wolves. Given the formation we play, Doherty will be asked to play almost as a winger with his only defensive responsibility likely to involve tracking the opposition full-back.
