New Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou will take charge of the club for the first time when they face Brentford on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. 

The Australian and his team will then face a huge test in their first home game of the season when they welcome Manchester United to north London the following week.

Before the start of the season, the Lilywhites are likely to be busy in the transfer window with several outgoings and incomings expected.

A number of current players could leave the club, while the future of talisman Harry Kane remains uncertain amid rumoured interest from United.

Postecoglou will also look to bolster his backline after Spurs’ disappointing performance in the Premier League this season, during which the Lilywhites conceded more goals than 14 of the 20 teams involved.

It now appears that the north London outfit have already identified one potential target for the summer.

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham are keeping tabs on Fulham centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo and could soon formally declare their interest.

Adarabioyo is one of several central defenders that Tottenham are monitoring

The report claims that the Lilywhites’ interest in the defender is still at an early stage, but the former England youth international is one of a number of players being considered.

Adarabioyo, 25, joined Fulham from Manchester City’s youth system in the summer of 2020 and has since been a regular for the Cottagers.

The former England youth international has now attracted interest from other clubs after his impressive performances under Marco Silva helped Fulham secure a top-half finish in the Premier League this term.

In total, he has made 107 appearances for the club across all competitions.

The west London outfit reportedly attempted to persuade the central defender to extend his current contract, which expires next summer, but an agreement hasn’t been reached.

Fulham could therefore look to sell the player this summer rather than risk losing him for free next year.

Spurs have already lost Clement Lenglet this summer, with the Frenchman returning to parent club Barcelona after a relatively uninspiring loan spell in the capital.

Fellow defender Davinson Sanchez could also depart the club in the coming weeks, the report claims, which would leave Postecoglou short of options at centre-back.
