Tottenham Hotspur want to sign JP Chermont

Tottenham are reportedly eying a move for Santos teenager full-back JP Chermont ahead of the summer window.

According to Brazilian journalist Rogerio Siquiera via Sport Witness, Tottenham are interested in signing JP Chermont, the teenage full-back from Santos. Spurs are looking at some young players for their first-team squad and are hoping to lure the right back to the club in the summer.

Tottenham are interested in JP Chermont?

Some Spurs fans will undoubtedly point out that they have never heard of the player called JP Chermont, and there have been no reports linking the right-back to the club. Yet, journalist Rogeiro Siquiera insists that the Spurs are keen on the teenagers from Santos and that they could make their move in the summer.

Chermont’s contract expires in September 2025, meaning Tottenham could have an upper hand in negotiations should they open a channel with Santos. He only turned 18, which allows him to move abroad, and has only been playing first-team games recently, which begs the question of Spurs and their seriousness in pursuing the teenager.

Spurs could be looking at him as a backup to Pedro Porro next season, with Ange Postecoglou struggling at times without the Spaniard. Tottenham could cash in on Emerson Royal, who remains their next-best right-back option at the club, as many would happily see the Brazilian leave the club.

Hence, the idea of signing someone like the 18-year-old South American full-back would make sense from a squad depth point of view. However, there are doubts about whether the teenager is even close to coming here and playing a backup role, given how limited his experience has been with senior football.

Tottenham to make defensive changes

Barring their two centre-backs Cr, Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven and full-back pair Destiny Udogie and Pedro Porro, Spurs are ready to sell all the other players, including Ben Davies, Emerson Royal and Ryan Sessegnon, in the summer window.

Ange Postecoglou might bring in another centre-back and some viable backup stars for Porro and Udogie. Hence, the idea of signing someone as young as the 18-year-old South American full-back Chermont persists, but they might want to bring someone with more experience to play deputies to his first-choice full-backs.
