According to a report by the Sun, Spurs are among four Premier League heavyweights looking at signing young Bristol City defender Lloyd Kelly.
The England U21 international has been in sublime form for City so far this season, and is beginning to catch the eyes of some bigger fish.
The 20-year-old already stands at a towering 6ft 3″, and has also showed his class playing on the left hand side of the Bristol defence, despite his future probably being in the centre.
This versatility is always an attractive selling point in a defender, especially in the Premier League where the games come thick and fast.
Tottenham could face stiff competition from Liverpool in particular, after Joe Gomez suffered a leg fracture this week.
With Dejan Lovren also out, it is possible that Liverpool could make a January move for the young Championship defender.
Spurs already have some young defenders of their own, with the likes of Juan Foyth, Kyle Walker-Peters, and Cameron Carter-Vickers, but should they be bulking their defence out further?
