According to The Sun, Tottenham are closely monitoring West Bromwich Albion full-back, Nathan Ferguson.
The 19-year-old has played 18 times for the Baggies this season and is viewed by many as a real star of the future.
He is quick, strong in the tackle and boasts intelligence in his play when choosing his moments to bomb forward.
The Sun report suggests that Ferguson is out of contract next summer. If a new deal isn’t agreed Tottenham could get their man for as little as £300,000.
Jose Mourinho appears to have outlined his intentions for a new right-back to compete for a place in the team with Serge Aurier.
The Portuguese manager persuing a full-back looks like bad news for Kyle Walker-Peters.
The 22-year-old has only played five times in all competitions this season and at times has struggled to make the matchday squad.
Signing a talented youngster from another club would suggest that Mourinho isn’t at all convinced by Walker-Peters.
With Aurier the man in control of the shirt at the moment, his days would look increasingly numbered at Tottenham.
The youngster isn’t at the age where he could sit around and wait for a chance. As a third choice, he could wait years and the England under-21 man might be better off seeking a move.
Walker-Peters has struggled with the demands of Premier League football, it’s fair to say.
He has looked considerably short of the required standards to have a regular presence in the Tottenham team.
Ferguson would see Spurs land one of the country’s brightest young talents and he has the required potential to become a regular for the club.
His arrival would almost certainly be detrimental for Walker-Peters and could strike a significant blow to his Tottenham career.
