Does signing Daniel Opare make sense?

There are claims we are looking at Daniel Opare, a 22 year-old  full-back from Standard Liege. He is primarily a right-back but can play on the left. The fact that he is right footed doesn't make him an ideal candidate to overlap from left-back, the defensive position we are looking to fill.

The Gunners were linked with the Ghanaian international in February last year and now it is believed new Technical Director Franco Baldini has recommended him to Andre Villas-Boas. Opare may only cost about £1.3 million (€1.5 million) but with Walker cemented at right-back and Adam Smith coming through it would seem a strange signing.

There are doubts about Zeki Fryers and Danny Rose, but surely we would be looking for a specialist left-back and preferably left-footed. However quotes from the player would suggest we are truely interested.

He said: "I am flattered by the interest of Spurs. They are a very good team in England I will jump at the chance to join them if they reach an agreement with my current club.

"I know there is a long way to go yet and also the level in England is a lot higher than in Belgium, but I think I can play there at a good level.

"If I get the chance to play for a team like Tottenham I will take it."

Opare came through the Real Madrid academy and played for the Spanish sides reserve team before moving to Standard three years ago. Is the Premier League his next stop.
