​Tottenham Hotspur are the latest side to express an interest in signing highly-rated Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson. 

Mauricio Pochettino's side join the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool in their pursuit for the 24-year-old who has earned many plaudits this term.

Steve Agnew's side look set for an immediate return to the Championship but Gibson has shone at the Riverside this season, earning his first England call-up for last month's World Cup qualifier against Lithuania.

According to reports from the Daily Mail, via the ​Metro, Gibson could command a figure in the region of £30m. Antonio Conte's Chelsea were quoted this figure and view the Englishman as ideal competition for David Luiz, Kurt Zouma and Gary Cahill. 

Liverpool's defensive woes have been exposed far too often this term and manager Jurgen Klopp will be casting an eye over potential suitors. The German manager has shortlisted Gibson as a prime target but competition for his signature will be high.

Arsenal's interest will likely be determined once manager Arsene Wenger's future is confirmed. The Frenchman has yet to commit to a new deal but a move to north London may tempt the 6'1" defender regardless. 

Spurs are renowned for utilising raw English talent and Gibson certainly fits the mould that will tempt Pochettino. The Argentine manager will need to move quickly to sign the versatile defender but if they secure Champions League football over their rivals, it may well make the pathway to sign Gibson, more clearer.
