Tottenham will have to sign a new right-back this summer given that Kieran Trippier is set to join Atletico Madrid. As things stand, Serge Aurier who is injured will serve as first-choice right back for the club next season with the inexperienced Kyle Walker-Peters as cover.
Hiroki Sakai has been a regular for Marseille during recent seasons and made over 100 appearances for them. He was in good form during the past season and finished as Marseille’s Player of the Season. The Japan international could prove to be a good temporary replacement for Trippier in North London.
