Tottenham Hotspur have already invested big in the transfer window this summer, breaking their club record to sign Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

The Frenchman joined last week for a mammoth £53.8m, which could rise to £62.8m after add-ons (BBC).

Spurs also added the 18-year-old Leeds United winger, Jack Clarke, to their roster, signing him for £10m before loaning him back to the Championship side for the season (BBC).

However, despite these attacking signings, right-back was certainly a problem area for Tottenham last season, as Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier struggled to maintain their form.

Kyle Walker-Peters was only used sporadically and is in dire need of some first-team experience if he is to make the step up.

It is unclear whether Spurs will have the necessary funds to bring in a new star right-sided fullback this summer, but could they already have one in their midst?

Juan Foyth has played the last three international games for Argentina at the Copa America at right-back, and his stats posted against Chile in the third-place play-off show that he could be an option next season.

  • 64 touches of the ball
  • 5 out of 7 tackles completed
  • 5 clearances made
  • 25 out of 32 passes completed

  • Won 1 foul for his team
  • One booking
