Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Sassuolo full-back Mert Muldur, who has impressed in Serie A this season.


According to Kronen Zeitung (via Spox), Spurs have already shown their interest in the 22-year-old Turkish international, with a view to sign him this summer.


Muldur is contracted to Sassuolo until June 2024, and it remains to be seen whether Sassuolo will be eager to cash in on him and make a profit on the €4.70 million fee that they signed him for in 2019 from Rapid Wien.


Serge Aurier and Matt Doherty have both been underwhelming this season at right-back for Spurs, and the North London club needs to reinvest in the position in the summer.


Muldur is a very talented and versatile full-back, being able to play further forward on the right flank apart from as a right-back, and he has been a regular starter in a Sassuolo side that started the season off brilliantly, but then fell off in the middle of the season.


Signing Muldur could be a brilliant investment by Spurs, and the player's agent has recently confirmed that the Turkish international is in regular talks with several top clubs in Italy and England, but that he is also content with staying at Sassuolo as he is constantly improving at the club.


With him having three years left on his current contract with Sassuolo, the Italian side are facing no pressure to sell him, and as a result, it would not be surprising if they demand a relatively high price for him.


Muldur has played in 29 games in all competitions this season, playing either in defence or on the wing, and his value has gone up to €9.50 million (transfermarkt.com), which could be an attractive fee for Tottenham.
