Standard Liege defender Daniel Opare has welcomed speculation suggesting he could be a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

The 22-year old Ghana international is said to have been recommended to Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas by the club's new technical director Franco Baldini. He can play as an attacking full-back on either the left or right so could be seen as a potential back-up for Kyle Walker or perhaps even a replacement for Benoit Assou-Ekotto, who has been linked to a move away from the club this summer.

The Daily Mail understand that Tottenham left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto is wanted by ambitious Turkish side Fenerbahce.

Assou-Ekotto had a disappointing season for Spurs and often found himself on the bench as Andre Villas-Boas preferred Kyle Naughton or Jan Vertonghen at left-back. If an offer of around £6million came in then the club may be tempted to allow the 29-year old to leave and use the money to buy a replacement, or give Danny Rose a chance next season.
