Tottenham Hotspur battle other European giants in the pursuit of Wolves star Rayan Ait-Nouri
According to Daily Mail Online, Tottenham Hotspur have shown an interest in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Rayan Ait-Nouri amidst interest from several European clubs. He has been impressive in the Premier League since moving to his current club in 2020.
Ait-Nouri initially joined Wolves on a loan deal from Angers in 2020 before it was made permanent ahead of this season. They had paid £10million to get his services full-time last July and it has proven to be an inspired decision. Other clubs are also now waking up to the 20-year-old’s performances.
Tottenham face competition from Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Manchester City and Liverpool for the Frenchman’s signature. Daniel Levy will have a tough job at hand if the club hopes to get their target in the coming transfer windows.
He has played 11 matches this season and has two assists in the process across all competitions. Being just 20 years of age, he has the best years of his career ahead of him and can improve even further if properly guided. His excellent displays coupled with his potential has made him an exciting prospect eyed by many clubs.
The left-back’s former club Angers had inserted a 50 per cent sell-on clause for a future transfer. Even though there is a high interest for the player, Wolves may not fully benefit from selling him now.
With Ben Davies being deployed as a left centre-back role, there is a lack of cover for Sergio Reguilon in the wing-back position. Ryan Sessegnon continues to serve as the Spaniard’s understudy and has put up good performances.
While the youngster makes up the numbers, he still has ways to go before being considered a reliable choice.

If Sessegnon fails to do so, we would need a replacement if we hope to challenge for titles moving forward. And even if he impresses, the addition of Ait-Nouri could help a lot with increasing the quality of our squad.
If the Wolves youngster joins us, it could facilitate a possibility of moving Sessegnon up the pitch as a winger where the depth is lacking currently. In that sense, we could land two birds with one stone.
