Tottenham in contact with Marseille fullback Hiroki Sakai

Tottenham are eyeing Olympique Marseille fullback Hiroki Sakai.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has plans to upgrade his fullback options and Tuttosport says Sakai is on his shortlist.

Indeed, Spurs are in contact with the Japan international's minders.

Mourinho appreciates Sakai's versatility, with the defender capable of playing on both sides of defence.

But Sakai isn't the only option under consideration, with RB Leipzig fullback Nordi Mukiele and Elseid Hysaj from Napoli also on the radar.
