Tottenham Hotspur could be interested in signing in-form Hull City centre-back Curtis Davies, understands.
Tim Sherwood’s side face the possible departures of key players Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches this summer, which would leave them well short of options in the centre-back position.
This has led the club to prepare possible replacements for their unsettled stars, with a White Hart Lane insider revealing that Davies’ form had caught the eye at Tottenham this season.
The 29-year-old is finally starting to show some of the form that saw him emerge as such a highly rated youngster during his time at West Bromwich Albion earlier in his career, putting in a number of solid displays at the back for Hull this term and sparking talk of an England call-up. Davies remains an outsider to make Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad, but he could still earn himself a move to a bigger club as Spurs line him up as one of several summer options to shore up their back four. Curtis Davies has had a very good season and I think there’s some talk that we could move for him, a Tottenham source explained. “A lot will depend on who goes and who we can keep in terms of options at the back.
