Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly contemplating whether to make an approach for Udinese full-back Festy Ebosele.

Tottenham Hotspur allegedly hold an interest in securing a deal for Udinese full-back Festy Ebosele.

Since the arrival of head coach Ange Postecoglou in the summer, Spurs' full-backs have really come to the fore and made a positive impression on the team.

Pedro Porro and Destiny Udogie have often been the standouts having been provided with the licence to go forward and take positions more centrally when required.

Between them, the pair have two goals and 10 assists in the Premier League during 2023-24, while Emerson Royal and Ben Davies have deputised adequately on occasions.

As it stands, the quartet seem more likely than not to remain at Spurs in the long term, with Davies also offering important backup as a left-sided centre-back.

Nevertheless, according to HITC, Spurs are currently considering whether to try to sign Ebosele during the summer transfer window.

The right-back initially made his name at Derby County, making 41 appearances for the Rams before being sold once financial issues took hold at Pride Park.

Given Udinese's links with Watford, it was perceived that the Republic of Ireland international may ultimately spend time at Vicarage Road at some phase of his time tied to the Italian side.

Instead, Ebosele has established himself as a regular in the starting lineup, making a total of 19 starts and six substitute outings in Serie A during 2023-24.

Although Udinese have only won three times in Italy's top flight, Gabriele Cioffi's side currently sit three points clear of the relegation zone.

Spurs may view Ebosele as a straight alternative to Djed Spence, who moved on loan to Genoa in January after a failed loan stint at Leeds United.

Coincidentally, Leeds are another team who have been credited with an interest in Ebosele and may make their move if they secure promotion to the Premier League.

Ebosele holds a contract at Udinese until 2027, yet his current employers are in a position where they could make pure profit on him having acquired his services on a free transfer.
