Sharing the latest transfer news coming out of Tottenham Hotspur, Sky Sports (via Football Daily) have now lifted the lid on a development involving Brighton and Hove Albion ace Tariq Lamptey.
The Lowdown: Spurs on the full-back hunt?
Centre-back is said to be Tottenham’s number one priority, but reports have also suggested a new full-back is on the cards.
Spurs may need a replacement for the Ivorian if he does manage to part ways, with Sky Sports now sharing a development.
The Latest: Sky Sports share Spurs development…
Indeed, the broadcaster has lifted the lid on a development involving Tottenham and Brighton defender Lamptey.
It is believed that Spurs have added the exciting 20-year-old to their growing list of targets and are now interested in pursuing him this summer.
“We’ve got some news on Tariq Lamptey, now listen to this,” Sky explained live on air (via Football Daily).
“Spurs interested in signing Brighton’s Lamptey this summer, the England Under-21 right-back, formerly of Chelsea, played 19 games for Brighton, really impressed last season, (but) hasn’t played since December because of injury.
“But Spurs, we understand, are interested so keep an eye out for that one.”
The Verdict: Promising development…
Lamptey showed real promise in spells for the Seagulls last campaign and comes as an exciting prospect, but Spurs may face a fight on their hands to sign him this summer.
Brighton boss Graham Potter is clearly desperate to keep hold of his best players this summer with clubs already knocked back in attempts to sign star defender Ben White.
It is unclear how much they would demand for Lamptey’s signature, but the fact he is young and homegrown could mean Spurs may have to invest significantly.
However, Spurs fans could take promise by the fact new managing director Fabio Paratici is already identifying firm targets early into his tenure.
