Tottenham open talks for £15m Wolves right back Matt Doherty

Tottenham have opened talks with Wolves over a deal for right back Matt Doherty. 

The north London side remain open to selling Serge Aurier who has interest from Bayer Leverkusen and AC Milan and want 28-year-old Doherty, valued close to £15million, to replace him.

Jose Mourinho has been searching the market for an upgrade on French right back Aurier and Spurs are now in negotiations with Wolves.  

The Irishman, who still has three years left to run on his Wolves contract, was said to be subject of a £12m first offer from Tottenham, excluding performance-related add-ons. 

Doherty was part of the Wolves side that lifted the League One title in 2013-14, as well as the team that won the Championship crown in 2017-18.

The Republic of Ireland international has made 302 appearances for Wolves in total, registering 28 goals and 41 assists since joining from Bohemians in 2010.

In the meantime, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is pursuing a deal for Arsenal defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles to replace Doherty.  

The 22-year-old Englishman made 32 appearances for the Gunners in 2019-20, providing one goal and two assists. 

Doherty could become Spurs’ third signing of the summer after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg joined from Southampton and Joe Hart arrived from Burnley.
