Tottenham Hotspur reportedly failed with an enquiry for Inter Milan defender Dalbert.

Tuttomercatoweb report Tottenham made an approach for Dalbert in the January transfer window but were knocked back by Inter.

Inter Milan signed Dalbert from French side Nice last summer but he has failed to hold down a regular place, with just four Serie A starts this season.

Despite this, Inter are committed to Dalbert and believe he will prove to be a success.

Dalbert is a left-back who at Tottenham would compete for a spot with Ben Davies and Danny Rose.

He has been compared in style to Gareth Bale, with Football Italia writing: "In terms of like-for-like comparisons, the one that springs to mind when watching Dalbert is like Gareth Bale when he played left-back for Tottenham Hotspur."

It's easy off the back of that to see why Tottenham would be interested, but they will nee to look elsewhere.

Tottenham might have a better solution lined up in any case, Fulham defender Ryan Sessegnon, who has earned Bale comparisons of his own.

The Mirror report the Fulham wonderkid has his eye on a move to Tottenham this summer, preferring them to the Manchester clubs or Liverpool.
