Tottenham confident beating Arsenal to Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence

Tottenham are ready to move for Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.

The youngster has been a revelation at Nottingham Forest this season with a string of impressive performances helping them reach the Championship play-off final.

Spence, on loan at the City Ground from Middlesbrough, has caught the eye of a number of Premier League clubs.

Arsenal are among them, after his standout display knocked Mikel Arteta's side out of the FA Cup.

But, just as Spurs pipped their North London rivals into the top four, they are also set to steal Spence from under their noses too, says The Sun.

Antonio Conte views him as a potential right wing-back upgrade as the Italian looks to invest heavily in his squad this summer.

It is believed Conte is happy to let Emerson Royal leave and has made £15million Spence his prime target.
