Tottenham hold an interest in Wolves defender Willy Boly, according to Football Insider.

Boly joined Wolves on loan in the summer of 2017, helping them achieve promotion to the Premier League before signing permanently and playing a key role as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side qualified for Europe last season.

The 28-year-old has received plaudits for his dominant performances, particularly in recent impressive away victories at Besiktas and Manchester City. He was especially good against Besiktas, scoring a late winner as Wolves secured a memorable win.

Football Insider claims Spurs plan to scout Boly in the coming months as they look to bring in an experienced defender. Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are both out of contract next summer, so the Londoners will need an established Premier League centre-back to replace one or both of them.

Juan Foyth and Davinson Sanchez could be given a chance to nail down starting spots after the international break, but Mauricio Pochettino will know experience is needed if Alderweireld and Vertonghen depart in the near future.

Whether Boly is good enough to make the step up is debatable, but Tottenham’s scouting missions will give the club a better idea of whether he should be pursued.
