With the January transfer window now open, Tottenham and Arsenal are looking to strengthen their squads in a bid to finish in the Premier League’s top four and among their top targets is Brighton’s Tariq Lamptey.
The former Chelsea defender has excelled since moving to the south coast, and his performances have not gone unnoticed by some of the division’s elite clubs.
The 21-year-old has only recently returned from a hamstring injury but is already contributing to Brighton’s up-turn in form.
Antonio Conte has made it clear that Tottenham must make signings this winter in order to improve, and looks keen to offload Matt Doherty.
Spurs did sign Emerson Royal from Barcelona in the summer, although a player of Lamptey’s potential is seen as a long-term investment.
