During the summer Tottenham were linked with several centre-backs even though we were not in the market for one and that Mauricio Pochettino had made it clear Cameron carter-Vickers could step up to the plate.
We were looking and sounding players out with an eye on the future perhaps. A club knows when a player is unsettled and it wouldn't be doing it's job properly if it didn't continually look for replacements who are at the right age and who fit all the other criteria we are looking for.
We were linked with Emanuel Mammana and we have been linked with the 20-year-old (21 next February) former River Plate defender signed by Lyon this summer. We will monitor him for the season together with other potential targets whilst also keeping a close eye on our academy prospects.
