There have been a number of full-backs linked with Tottenham in the media this summer as Spurs look to resolve problems, especially at left-back.
Last season injuries to defenders left Tottenham short of options across their back line. On occasions they were having to use players out of position and so Mauricio Pochettino is looking to strengthen that area of the team during the summer.
Full-Backs Linked with Tottenham
A position where Tottenham have needed to strengthen the team is at left-back. Over the past two seasons Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Danny Rose, Kyle Naughton, Jan Vertonghen and Zeki Fryers have been used on the left side of defence without ever finding a solution to the problem. In a HotspurHQ poll earlier in the summer the only recognised full-backs that supporters would retain for the coming season were Kyle Walker and Fryers.
The full-backs who have been linked with Tottenham this summer are:
The obvious focus of attention has been on signing a left-back and a recent in the Mirror said that Tottenham had a greed a deal for the Swansea international, Ben Davies. The Mirror appears to have been a little premature in stating a fee had been reached but Spurs are certainly in negotiations with the Welsh club over Davies as well as possibly goalkeeper, Michel Vorm and striker Wilfried Bony. It is thought that the clubs are nearing an agreement and it would then be up to Davies to finalise matters with Spurs. Davies git his chance in the Swansea team in 2012 when Neil Taylor was injured and has held the left-back position ever since.
