Tottenham are interested in signing Brighton ace Tariq Lamptey and plan to use funds from Serge Aurier’s proposed £20million move to Paris Saint-Germain to fund a move for the England U21 ace.

Lamptey, 20, joined the Seagulls from Chelsea in January 2020 after being deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.

However, the Blues’ decision is already looking to be a poor one, with Lamptey establishing himself as one of the highest-rated full-backs in the Premier League under Graham Potter.

Despite having just 18 months of Premier League experience under his belt, Lamptey has attracted interest from the league’s top six and Sky Sports claim Spurs want to sign him this summer.

Aurier joined the club from Paris Saint-Germain but he wishes to return to the French capital and Spurs are happy to let him go, with a fee of around £20m being touted.

Spurs will then use that money to fund a move for Lamptey but negotiations will be difficult as the Seagulls value him at around £50m and he has a contract with the club until 2025.

Arsenal are currently in talks with Brighton for defender Ben White and it’s unlikely that the club will sanction both departures, meaning Spurs will have to intensify their interest.

Spurs signed Matt Doherty from Wolves last summer for a fee of around £12m but the Irish international has failed to impress in north London and the club could be open to offers for him.
