Tottenham Hotspur need new full backs.

Tottenham Hotspur have improved a lot since Mauricio Pochettino's first season or two in charge.

One area it could be argued they have gone backwards is at full-back.

Danny Rose lacks the consistency and dynamism he one showed at left-back, and at right-back Kieran Trippier does not have the all round game of Kyle Walker.

 

If Spurs are to reach the next level, investing in a new right-back and left-back is key.

This summer the opportunity is there for them to do so, at a price.

Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka has emerged as one of the league's best in his position, and his potential is immense.

He was superb against Spurs this week and The Sun report the North London side are interested in signing him.

On the left, Ryan Sessegnon is a real possibility. The Mirror report Tottenham are keen and Fulham's relegation makes it possible.

It will be costly. Sessegnon is valued at £25 million, per The Mirror, while The Mail claim Wan Bissaka is worth £40 million alone.

That's a combined £65 million for the pair, a substantial investment.

There's a strong chance it will be worth it. Tottenham could sign their full-backs for the next decade, both are young, talented and English. Their new Rose and Walker.
