Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur could miss out on signing Djed Spence

According to The Guardian, Tottenham Hotspur could miss out on signing Djed Spence. Middlesbrough are getting ‘irritated’ by the lack of a serious offer from Spurs for the right-back.

It is also stated that Boro are willing to sell their man to Nottingham Forest instead. This will surely come as a surprise to Antonio Conte and Spurs but also as a lesson to make up their minds and cough up the cash if they really want quality players.

Spence has been on Spur’s radar since the start of the transfer window. The England U-21 right-back spent last season on loan at Forest, where he helped them to secure promotion to the Premier League via playoffs.

He made a total of 50 appearances for Forest scoring 3 and assisting 5, and helping Forest secure a top-flight return for the first time since 1999.

So close yet so far?

Conte has been revamping his squad this summer after securing Champion League football on the last day of the season. While the attack was ruthless in front of goal last season, the form of the full-backs was a concern for the Italian.

Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal could not perform up to the expected level. The duo did manage to find some form during the last half of the season, but consistent performance every week was missing.

The coach was aware of such inconsistency and was in the market to bring in a full-back. Spence fit that bill perfectly but after a month of negotiations, Spurs could potentially miss out on their man.

This could come as a blow to Conte who is revamping his squad with hopes to win a silverware with the Lilywhites this season. Whether they sign Spence or not, a full-back is required and they would then again have to look in the market for such a player.

What happens now will be interesting to see. Conte is a manager who makes good use of his full-backs, and looking for a new player with pre-season knocking on the door could turn out to be a headache for them.

More Tottenham Hotspur New

Meanwhile, Spurs fans will hope that a deal is concluded for Spence. They would love to watch the promising right-back make forward runs and trouble the opposition defence week in and out next season.

But we have to put money where our mouth is if we need talent in this market. Without a trophy since 2008, Spurs must go the extra mile to make sure this embarrassing drought is ended as soon as possible.
