Tottenham Hotspur could be looking for a new right-back this summer. Both of their current first-choice options could be leaving this summer.
The 28-year-old’s form has dipped this season, costing him a place in the England squad. Saturday’s Champions League final could be his last outing for Spurs.
Back-up choice Serge Aurier is also being linked with the exit door. France Football reports that Monaco could swoop for the Ivory Coast defender this summer.
Tottenham are concerned by Aurier’s ill-discipline and could trade him in. But if Trippier and Aurier both depart, this just leaves the relatively inexperienced Kyle Walker-Peters on their books.
This is why Aaron Wan-Bissaka should become a priority signing for Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs will need to be targeting right-backs and Wan-Bissaka is the perfect fit.
The England U21 starlet has been one of Crystal Palace’s best performers this season. Offering the Eagles defensive and attacking quality, Wan-Bissaka has the potential to reach the top.
Crystal Palace will hold out for a sizeable fee for their homegrown talent. But this could be worth the long-term investment for Tottenham.
Offloading underperforming duo Trippier and Aurier and bringing in 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka would be a shrewd piece of business by Spurs.
