Looking ahead to the summer transfer window, Mauricio Pochettino needs to make a number of changes to his Tottenham Hotspur squad to push to the next level.
And one area that needs a radical shake-up is the right-back department. Pochettino needs to think about major changes in this position.
Serge Aurier and Kieran Trippier are currently the two first-choice options for Tottenham but both have their flaws.
Aurier’s ill-discipline and inconsistent performances frustrate Spurs fans, while Trippier’s attacking threat is outweighed by his defensive weaknesses.
Pochettino should consider letting both players go in the summer and having two new right-backs on the scene.
One of them could be Kyle Walker-Peters, who deserves his first-team promotion. The academy graduate has been on the fringes of the first-team squad for a while, picking up a handful of games.
But the 21-year-old should jump ahead of Aurier and Trippier in the pecking order to become one of the top two choices at right-back for Spurs.
And the ideal summer signing to compete with Walker-Peters would be Crystal Palace starlet Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The England under-21 right-back has been one of the best defenders in the Premier League this season and would be ready to step up for Spurs.
With a healthy balance of attacking threat and defensive solidity, the 21-year-old should be Tottenham’s priority this summer.
Getting rid of Aurier and Trippier to sign Wan-Bissaka and promote Walker-Peters would be a prudent transfer plan for Spurs.
