Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur believes young PL ace is too expensive

Tottenham Hotspur believes Tariq Lamptey would be ‘too pricey’ 

According to journalist Dean Jones (Daily Express), Tottenham Hotspur is finding it challenging to meet the asking price for Brighton star Tariq Lamptey. 

Tariq Lamptey has shown massive improvement in the current campaign and is emerging as an increasingly important player for the Seagulls. The 21-year-old has secured a starting position under Graham Potter and appears to have made it his own.

Even though an injury in the initial phase of the season prevented the former Chelsea youngster from making regular appearances, he has already featured in 13 matches across all competitions this season.

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal were in the race for Brighton ace Tariq Lamptey.

Tottenham and Arsenal were believed to be interested in securing Lamptey’s services. However, it is said that Brighton’s £50million valuation is out of Tottenham’s reach, and Fabio Paratici has since found a cheaper alternative. 

Tottenham also have been linked with Adama Traore for a long time. Now, it is believed that the Spurs director is pushing for the move. Conte is planning to use the 25-year-old as a wing-back and could use his pace to provide the North London team with a new dynamic. 

Spurs signed Emerson Royal in the summer and the Brazilian has been a breath of fresh air. However, Antonio Conte doesn’t have quality backups for the role and Matt Doherty has fallen down the pecking order after failing to take his chances. The Italian manager has since been pushed to play Ben Davies in the central defensive position due to the lack of depth in the squad.

Tottenham inevitably requires a quality wing-back who can push for a starting spot while also adding much to the side’s balance. Lamptey is young, energetic and can tirelessly make runs in the flank.

The Brighton star is a long term prospect and could in time go on to do justice to Brighton’s valuation of his s services. Whether this will rekindle Tottenham’s interest in him some time in the future remains to be seen.

Conte has the experience of turning Victor Moses into the wing-back role and getting the best out of the Nigerian star. Therefore, the Italian can replicate his work with Traore. On top of that, the Wolves star’s physicality provides him with an advantage over opponent defenders. Spurs would get Traore at a meagre price after his poor spell at the Wanderers. 

While Lamptey could eventually;y emerge as the better player, Traore provides much more financial sense at the current moment.
