A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have been praising Tariq Lamptey – and discussing him as a player they’d like to see at Spurs – following his display on Saturday.
The Brighton right-back was a constant thorn in Norwich’s side on Saturday as he caused problems down the right from start to finish en route to a 1-0 win at Carrow Road.
Lamptey’s efforts have gone a long way to helping the Seagulls pull themselves away from Premier League trouble since the restart.
Seven points from their four top-flight games after the restart – the 19-year-old featured in three of those – have put Brighton nine points clear of the bottom three.
With Spurs in desperate need of bolstering their ranks at right-back this summer, quite a few fans thought Lamptey would be a good candidate.
Here is what they said on social media:
Lamptey’s the best right back I’ve seen for a Spurs

The fact that Chelsea sold a 19-year-old right back in Tariq Lamptey for £4m that would walk into our squad speaks volumes.

If Spurs fans are really gassed over young English full backs why are we talking about Aarons and not Lamptey? Much better player.

Tariq Lamptey at RB for Brighton looks a talent. Been impressed with him the last few games . . . I actually think he’d be an upgrade on Aurier. #THFC
