Tottenham Hotspur are keen to sign Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer, according to Sky Sports.

Spurs are in need of defensive reinforcements ahead of the new 2020-21 Premier League campaign and right-back is especially an area of concern.

With question marks over whether Serge Aurier will be at Tottenham when the window closes and Kyle Walker-Peters already having joined Southampton, a new full-back option would be welcome.

Reported Spurs target Doherty impressed last season as a mainstay for Wolves, with the 28-year-old both a tenacious defender and enterprising, forward-thinking full-back.

Tottenham recently fielded Gedson Fernandes at right-back in the 3-0 friendly win over Ipswich Town, while Juan Foyth has also played in that position over the last 12-18 months.

However, for Spurs to compete for major honours next season they will need strength in depth.

Tottenham have had issues at right-back since the sale of Kyle Walker in 2017, with Kieran Trippier also offloaded last summer.

The report suggests Spurs would have to pay a fee in the £12 million range to land Doherty, but an offer has yet to be made.
