Spurs were right not to sign £45m target insists former player

Our right back position has been a side salad for journalists around the country, with their appetite fully focused on our midfield reinforcements.

We were heavily linked with a certain Crystal Palace academy graduate throughout the transfer window before his £45 million move to Manchester United (Guardian).

Aaron Wan-Bissaka had an impressive 18/19 season, showcasing his huge potential as he won Palace’s player of the year award.

Did you know he completed more tackles than any defender in Europe’s elite? (Whoscored).

However, former Spurs player Pascal Chimbonda thinks Tottenham made the right move in avoiding bringing Wan-Bissaka to North London: “Tottenham made the right choice to not try and sign Wan-Bissaka.

“He had a very good season for Palace, but he’s still very far off from becoming a proven player.

“Tottenham need to strengthen other parts of the pitch more urgently and Wan-Bissaka would have taken a massive wedge out of the transfer budget.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

Our right back position could do with a little reinforcement and will all depend what happens with the current players within our ranks.

However, with our current selection of Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker-Peters and Serge Aurier are we in need of reinforcements?

Juan Foyth can now be considered after ending Coutinho…
