Tottenham could make a bid for Bournemouth defender Adam Smith if Kyle Walker leaves the club this summer, according to The Mirror.

Walker’s future is in doubt at Spurs after reportedly having his head turned by Manchester City.

The right-back has been left out of the starting line-up for a number of big games recently, and a row with Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t helped matters.

If Walker departs, The Mirror believe Tottenham could move for Smith, who used to be on the books at White Hart Lane.

Smith left Spurs permanently in the summer of 2014, just before Mauricio Pochettino arrived. But it is believed the Argentine has been impressed with what he has seen of the 26-year-old this season.

Tottenham are also thought to be interested in Cherries striker Josh King, so we could see a double summer swoop.

Smith is a decent full-back, but I’m not sure he’s much of an upgrade on Kieran Trippier. If Walker leaves, Spurs should probably be looking at a right-back with Champions League experience.

That said, Pochettino has a track record for developing English players with high potential.
