It seems that, as well as finding a suitable backup for Harry Kane, Tottenham are going to be heavily linked with a bunch of right-backs this summer.

We’ve already had numerous articles on their alleged interest in Thomas Meunier, while Friday saw Barcelona’s Emerson be the subject of an enquiry from Spurs.

They aren’t the only ones, however, as reports from Italy have started to suggest that Atalanta’s Timothy Castagne is also becoming a viable option for José Mourinho.

We already covered TuttoMercatoWeb’s claims a couple of days ago regarding Spurs ‘sending signals’ to the Belgian about signing him, and now that’s been confirmed by Citta Celeste.

The website explain the player is ‘very unlikely’ to stay in Bergamo, and Tottenham are ‘pressing strongly’ for him as they continue their search for someone to provide viable competition for Serge Aurier.

With a contract expiring in 2021, this summer is the last good opportunity for the Serie A side to cash in on their defender, and if they can’t get him to renew, there’s only one solution left.

Since that seems ‘very unlikely’, a sale is the most probable outcome, and Tottenham ‘seem to be ahead’ of any competition for the time being.
