‘A late window deal’: BBC pundit tips Spurs to seal ‘late’ signing of 25-year-old 

BBC pundit and former footballer Danny Mills has suggested that there is one late deal which could be on the way for Tottenham Hotspur before the transfer window is closed.

Mauricio Pochettino had a few headaches to deal with in the full-back area last season, as Spurs limped towards the finish line in the race to clinch a top four spot.

Danny Rose appears to be the first choice left-back at the moment, having featured in the club’s historic appearance in the Champions League final last month.

However, the Englishman’s future in north London remains an unresolved issue and therefore Everton star Lucas Digne has been identified as a possible replacement.

According to ex-footballer and current pundit Danny Mills, the Toffees’ defender is someone whom Spurs could seal a late deal for in the transfer window.

He told Football Insider: “The merry-go-round has been given a big push by the Ndombele and Clarke deals, and I’m expecting Tottenham to be busy for the rest of the window.

“There is talk of Lucas Digne going to Tottenham to replace Danny Rose if he leaves. There could be something in that, and it’s one to keep an eye on as a late window deal.

“He has been brilliant. He’s now worth £40m, more than double what they paid.

“He is technically very good, excellent going forward and knows how to defend.

“He’s going to get even better as he gets more used to the Premier League.”

Having signed Tanguy Ndombele for a record transfer fee, club chairman Daniel Levy might be in the mood to splash more cash this summer.
