With ongoing speculation about the future of Tottenham Hotspur duo Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier, the rumour mill has a potential replacement named, and his price tag, Barcelona full back Nelson Semedo.
The original claim here seems to come from the Daily Mirror and it is speculative at best.
Having made a name for himself at Benfica, Barcelona snapped him up in the summer of 2017 and in 2018/19 the 25-year-old made 42 appearances across all competitions for the side, but starting appearances have been in shorter supply it seems.
The Portuguese international seems to tick a number of boxes for manager Mauricio Pochettino but for a claimed £30million fee, I’m not so sure myself. But with Napoli reports for Kieran Trippier not going away and talk there of £25million being the asking price now, if we have an interest, this one could have legs.
Least it seems these fans think so as despite the speculative at best link, they’ve welcomed it but there are those not so excited by the link.
This would be good but can’t see it.

tbh not really worth the upgrade over Aurier imo

We'd have to really splash the cash for him
