Transfer News: Wolves make first move to bring back Matt Doherty from Tottenham Hotspur 

According to Football Insider (h/t Football.London), Wolves have registered their first offer for Tottenham Hotspur full-back Matt Doherty. 

Matt Doherty did have a decent spell in the last two seasons at Tottenham Hotspur. But, his impact has decreased drastically in this campaign. The arrival of Antonio Conte hasn’t improved the situation as the 29-year-old is constantly struggling to find game time.

The Irish right-back has played in only ten matches across all competition this term. None of them have been starts in the Premier League, which is certainly a step down from being a starter at Wolverhampton Wanderers for several years.

It is believed that Doherty’s lack of game time is pushing him towards an exit from Tottenham. In comparison, Wolves have shown interest in bringing the defender after selling him to the Lilywhites in 2020. It seems Bruno Lage’s team have made their first offer to spark a transfer. 

Tottenham signed Emerson Royal from Barcelona in the summer. The Brazilian has been impressive in this campaign and has won the trust of Antonio Conte. The 22-year-old full-back seems to have cemented his place in the Spurs squad. That could be the prime reason for Doherty’s fall from the starting lineup this term. 

However, in the few appearances, Doherty couldn’t capitalize. He barely showed anything that would have convinced Conte that the Irishman can displace Emerson from the lineup.

However, if the club indeed decides to sell the 29-year-old in the winter transfer window, Spurs would be without no viable backup in the position. Therefore, Antonio Conte has to find solid reinforcements to give Emerson stiff competition.

Japhet Tanganga can play on the right side of the defence, but being a natural centre-back, it isn’t logical to expect the same attacking endeavour or instincts from him as compared to naturalized right-backs in Emerson and Doherty.

The Italian manager has already suggested the need of bringing quality players in the January window to bolster his options. It remains to be seen what amount Wolves are willing to part ways with for the right wing-back but with his contract not up until at least the summer of 2024, we can hope to earn a decent sum of money from him- if we were open to selling him in the first place.
