Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on Barcelona's Nelson Semedo.

Nelson Semedo of FC Barcelona looks on prior to the La Liga match between RC Celta de Vigo and FC Barcelona at Abanca Balaidos Stadium on May 04, 2019 in Vigo, Spain.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are taking an interest in signing Barcelona right back Nelson Semedo this summer.

Spurs have seen Serge Aurier struggle since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, and Kieran Trippier continues to be linked with a host of other clubs.

 

That means a right back may well be a top target for Mauricio Pochettino this summer, and he's allegedly eyeing up a raid on Barcelona to solve the issue.

The Mirror report that Spurs are interested in Barca ace Semedo, and he would be available for £30million this summer.

Semedo, 25, has been in and out of the Barca side since joining from Benfica in 2017, failing to really settle at the Camp Nou despite winning two league titles.

With Sergi Roberto still Barcelona's first-choice right back, Semedo may look to move on this summer, and a move to Champions League finalists Spurs should be appealing.

Known for his blistering pace and attacking play, Semedo can provide what Spurs have lacked since losing Kyle Walker to Manchester City, but as an exciting right back who has failed to settle at a big club, a move for Semedo does seem similar to signing Aurier.
