The Sun have claimed that Spurs have entered the race to sign the Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie.

Chelsea and Manchester United are also said to have scouted the Scottish international who has impressed in his first full season in the Premier League.

Ritchie made his top flight debut way back in 2010 while a youngster at Portsmouth. Following Pompey’s relegation from the Premier League, Ritchie learnt his trade in the lower divisions with Swindon, before moving to Bournemouth in 2013.

It was on the south coast that Ritchie really began to forge a reputation, as Bournemouth rose through the divisions. Ritchie scored 15 goals to help Bournemouth win promotion to the Premier League in 2014-15, which saw the wide forward gain international recognition with Scotland.

Since making his international debut, Ritchie has scored three goals in eight caps including one this week as Scotland beat Denmark.

Ritchie likes to play on the right side of Bournemouth’s attack, from where he can cut inside onto his stronger left foot. With Bournemouth playing a similar high-intensity style to Tottenham, Ritchie might be a decent alternative to Erik Lamela on the right flank.

Is he good enough to add to the quality to the Spurs squad? Watch him in action below and decide.
