Report: Tottenham Hotspur keeping a ‘watchful eye’ on teenage Bundesliga right-back

Tottenham Hotspur tracking Borussia Monchengladbach right-back Joe Scally

Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be keeping a ‘watchful eye’ on Borussia Monchengladbach right-back Joe Scally, according to 90min (h/t Football.London).

Scally has featured in every single game for the Bundesliga side this season, scoring once in 17 games. His impressive performances for manager Daniel Farke’s side have seen him get called up for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

He has been named in manager Gregg Berhalter’s 26-man squad for the showpiece event in Qatar but it is unlikely that he pips Barcelona loanee and current AC Milan right-back Sergino Dest to a starting spot.

Nevertheless, it would be in our best interest to keep a track of him this month and the next if we are seriously interested in the youngster. This, however, would be a hammer blow for Djed Spence.

Scally to Spurs?

If we sign Scally and at least two right-backs don’t leave, Spence would find it tough to become a regular player in Spurs’ squad. We spent a fair amount getting him here from Middlesbrough.

But perhaps the writing was on the wall for him when manager Antonio Conte swiftly confessed that Spence was a club signing rather than a player he wanted at N17. He has played just 28 minutes across four games this season.

Emerson Royal has been Conte’s first-choice right-back, perhaps due to a lack of better options. Matt Doherty found some minutes during Emerson’s three-match red-card suspension after he was sent off against Arsenal in the 3-1 loss at the Emirates.

Was Spence a mistake signing? It’s too early to put labels on him. Fans are quick to judge players – they are heroes if they score in one game and villains the next if they don’t play well.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

This is Spence’s first season in the top flight. He’s getting to grips with life in the Premier League and one cannot expect him to get off to a flying start in his debut season, especially when he isn’t being handed minutes by the gaffer, to begin win.
