Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.
Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.
According to The London Evening Standard, Tottenham are interested in signing Spence from Middlesbrough.
It has been reported that Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho was impressed with the display produced by the right-back during his side’s recent FA Cup tie against Middlesbrough.
The report has added that the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss is a long-term admirer of the 19-year-old right-back and has been keeping tabs on him since he was released by Fulham, with his son having spoken highly of the teenager.

From Barcelona to Middlesbrough in a blink of an eye— Paul THFC (@PaulHofford) January 9, 2020
Come on, we need Aarons. Spence is a huge question mark and there’s no way he’ll be ready to make an impact for Spurs for awhile. Aarons is already Prem proven. Levy just needs to get the deal done.— Rickles (@burks_eric) January 9, 2020
Good to know our transfer targets are the result of detailed and prolonged, military like, scouting operations…….— Dave (@DavidJohnking6) January 9, 2020
From Koulibaly links to this..— Paul Iaconetti (@Paul_Iac) January 9, 2020
I’m not surprised. The kid is 19 and looked really good. Worked hard the full 90 and had some pace to him.— Adam Pierce (@Sir_Adam_Pierce) January 9, 2020
Target number 182734— Gedson (@GeraldMller15) January 9, 2020
Probably not good enough to improve the squad right now, but the good prospect for the future.— Marek Winiarski (@WiniarskiMark) January 9, 2020
Why? So he can sit on the bench and get loaned out season after season— Brandon Fleming (@BFleming7922) January 9, 2020
Remember how we bought Chadli?— Ping Pong God (@Coern14) January 9, 2020
Pity we didn’t buy Salah after he scored against us for Fiorentina…
Do we just sign anyone who looks good against us?? Oh well at least that gives us a massive pool to choose from— Steve Sharpe (@sabsharpe) January 9, 2020
January transfer unlikely
While Tottenham do need to sign a right-back in the January transfer window, it is hard to see Spence join the North London outfit this month.
The teenager may be playing for the Middlesbrough first team at the moment, but he cannot be expected to star for Spurs week in and week out.
Moreover, Boro manager Jonathan Woodgate has told The Hartlepool Mail that the club are “in negotiations” with the teenager over a new contract.
