As we enter the latter stages of an eventful Premier League season, Spurs find themselves right in the mix for the coveted prize that is Champions League football.

With the new back three system finally thriving, here are my four picks for wing-backs Tottenham should target in the summer as they look to strengthen under Antonio Conte.

Filip Kostic

The Serbian international has proven to be a very versatile player for Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt who currently sit ninth in the league but face an intriguing quarter-final tie against Spanish giants in the Europa League this coming Thursday (7th April).

Kostic has netted 3 goals and registered 8 assists in 25 games in the Bundesliga this season and has got 4 assists and 1 goal in 7 Europa League appearances (TransferMarkt).

Angelino

Another Bundesliga LWB has made my list and this time it’s RB Leipzig’s Angelino. As you may recall, Angelino has faced Tottenham before in what turned out to be a disappointing Champions League tie for Spurs.

The Spaniard has registered 12 assists in all competitions this season and has made the position his own as Leipzig look to progress in the league and Europa League (TransferMarkt).

Pedro Porro

Although this one may seem unrealistic, I truly believe Pedro Porro is capable of big things in the future and if Spurs were able to sign him, it would be a real statement of intent.

I believe the Spaniard will leave Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon at the end of the season, and a host of big European clubs will surely be interested in securing his signature.

This season, Porro has registered 7 assists and 4 goals in all competitions – very promising numbers for a wingback of just 22 years of age (TransferMarkt).

Wilfried Singo

To conclude my list, I have included one of Europe’s most under-the-radar talents in the sense he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves (outside of Italy).

Singo plays for Torino in Serie A and has played a big role in the team this season- becoming a regular starter for them. The Ivory Coast international has 4 assists and 3 goals to his name this season, while mostly playing as a right-back (TransferMarkt).

If he were to make the move to N17, playing naturally further forward as a RWB, I believe he has the skillset and potential to succeed within Antonio Conte’s system.
