Transfer News: Tottenham interested in signing Tariq Lamptey from Brighton

According to transfer news from Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing former Chelsea ace Tariq Lamptey from Brighton & Hove Albion this summer.

Lamptey is a product of the Chelsea youth academy. The young right-back progressed through the youth ranks at Spurs’ London rivals and went on to make his first-team debut for the Blues in 2019/20 under Frank Lampard.

However, the lack of a pathway to the first-team saw him decide to leave for Brighton & Hove Albion in the January transfer window last year. Since then, the 20-year-old has progressed quite a lot and is considered one of the most exciting young full-backs in the country.

The 2020/21 campaign was cut short with a serious injury for Lamptey. Prior to him getting injured though, the youngster was on a tear, as he managed one goal and three assists in just eleven Premier League matches. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Lamptey signed a new contract with Brighton this past January, extending his stay at the club till 2025. However, despite that, Tottenham have now expressed an interest in signing the 20-year-old this summer. (h/t Sky Sports)

Tottenham’s interest in young right-back stems from the fact that Serge Aurier is set for an exit from the club. The Ivory Coast international, who arrived at Spurs in 2017, confirmed that he would not be signing a new contract and with his current deal expiring in a year, he is expected to be on his way out.

Tottenham did strengthen the right-back department last summer with Matt Doherty. However, he has proven to be quite a dud. In Lamptey, the club can land an exciting, young right-back who can grow into a regular for years to come. But given the length of his contract, Brighton have the upper hand. So, it might prove to be tricky for the Lilywhites to land the ex-Chelsea academy product.
