According to Independent.ie, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Matt Doherty.
Doherty has been with Wolves since 2010, joining the English club from Bohemians for just £75,000 after impressing in a pre-season clash between the two teams.
Doherty passed 200 appearances for Wolves during their title-winning 2017-18 Championship season and has had no problems stepping up to Premier League level.
Indeed, the 26-year-old has been an ever-present for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this season and is in line for a new and improved contract, according to Independent.ie.
However, the same report claims that Tottenham are closely monitoring developments with the view to potentially making a move.
And Spurs must do all they can to sign the flying full-back either this month or at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
Kieran Trippier was rightly praised for his performances at the 2018 World Cup, with the right-back coming of age for England.
The 28-year-old has developed into a very good Premier League defender, but his form has not always been terrific this season and Doherty – the younger man – seems to be more of a long-term option for Spurs.
It is an exciting time to be at Wolves and the team have impressed many with their performances in the Premier League this season.

Tottenham would fancy their chances of luring Doherty to the English capital, however, and he has the potential to fill their right-back position for the next five or six years.
The price would have to be right for Tottenham, but they should not pass up the opportunity to sign the five-time Republic of Ireland international.
