The Lowdown: Spurs now eyeing Lamptey…
Sky Sports broke the news last week that Spurs are now eyeing a move for the youngster as one of the right-back candidates to replace Serge Aurier this summer, who is now being heavily linked with a north London exit.
The Latest: Hutton thrilled by this news…
Reacting to this news which has come out of Tottenham, Hutton has been left thrilled and believes it is a potential signing which could actually excite supporters.
“I think Brighton have got the best deal ever. What did they buy him for, £2-3million? We’re probably talking about a big figure here,” the Scottish pundit explained to Football Insider.
“I think he had an excellent start to the season. Yeah, he did drop off a little bit but that’s to be expected.
“Your first main season within the Premier League, especially for one so young, you’re going to have a little dip in form.
“I think that’s a move that the fans would be really excited about. He’s an exciting player and he’s going to get better as he gets more experienced.
“I think it’s one the fans would like.”
The Verdict: On the backburner…
While we agree that Lamptey is an exciting prospect, Tottenham should be prioritising the acquisition of at least one capable new centre-half, preferably two.
It has long been a problem position for Spurs and it may need reinforcing the most this summer, with chairman Daniel Levy not exactly having a king’s ransom in transfer funds. Tottenham need to adopt a sell-to-buy policy and any funds off a potential Aurier sale should go first and foremost towards signing a colossal centre-back.
