Tottenham have finally entered the transfer market with the capture of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax.
Mauricio Pochettino will be only too aware that more needs to be done after watching his side slip to an agonising late defeat to Chelsea at Wembley.
The Blues were more clinical and succeeded in crowding Spurs out of the game. The full-back positions, so crucial for the Lilywhites last term, proved a problem as neither Ben Davies or Kieran Trippier could do quite enough to get balls into the box.
While right-back must be a priority following Kyle Walker’s £50million move to Manchester City, there’s also a chance Spurs are on the hunt for a left-sided player, especially one who can play higher up the field.
Sky Sports report that they could find themselves disappointed, however, as Manchester United are now monitoring one of their key targets: Fulham defender Ryan Sessegnon.
The 17-year-old has been watched by Spurs for over a year, though he recently signed his first professional contract with the Cottagers.
United are keeping a close eye on his situation in case the Championship side change their mind and sell up, as Jose Mourinho could benefit from a left-back he can develop from scratch having been unimpressed by Luke Shaw.
For the coming season, it seems likely the England under-19 international will stay with the west Londoners, but Spurs may now find it harder to lure him in the future if they have serious competition from the Red Devils.
