Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino could change both his full-backs this summer.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are now ‘highly likely’ to sign Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham this summer.

Tottenham have already brought in Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke this week, and it seems that Mauricio Pochettino’s side now have the taste for new additions.

Spurs could complete the signing of Sessegnon soon, as they aim to negotiate a deal with Fulham.

 

At the moment Fulham are said to want £40 million for the England youth international, but Tottenham are hopeful of getting the deal done for around £25 million (Daily Mail).

To make room for the addition Tottenham could sell Danny Rose, and Pochettino may make alterations to both his full-backs for next term.

Pochettino also reportedly could offload Kieran Trippier, with Norwich City’s Max Aarons on his wishlist.

The double deal would show great foresight from Tottenham, as they could trade England’s old full-back duo for their future one.

Rose and Trippier were both part of England’s World Cup squad in 2018, but they are starting to head beyond their peak years.

Sesegnon and Aarons, on the other hand, are still teenagers and have years left before they reach the height of their talents.

And if Spurs can trade their current full-back duo, while the still have a lot of value, and bring in younger models it could be a very smart move.
