Premier League clubs chasing Wolves right-back Matt Doherty

Wolves defender Matt Doherty impresses in his opening Premier League season

Interest has picked up for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Republic of Ireland right-back Matt Doherty following a promising opening term in the Premier League. He was one of many players to truly step up to the plate through swapping the Championship for the Premier League, and two Premier League clubs are reportedly tracking his availability.

Consistently solid performances almost pushed Matt Doherty into the PFA Premier League Team of the Year, eventually narrowly missing out against Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold. Paddy Power were the ones to offer a market on each position for PFA Team of the Year, and they're also the ones who are first to provide odds on Doherty's next club, with all options being within the Premier League.

Two of the listed teams are given the same 11/2 price to seal a deal for Matt Doherty this summer, making them joint favourites. A total of six Premier League clubs are handed odds by the bookmaker, but with two set at 11/2, it's assumed that there could be a three-way fight for the right-back next season as Wolves hope to retain him.

Manchester United and Spurs both at 11/2 to sign Matt Doherty

Bookmakers can't decide a more likely team between Man United and Tottenham Hotspur when it comes to Matt Doherty's next club, and even those with little to no interest in football would recognise how much both sides need a new player in the right-back position.

Due to Antonio Valencia's contract running out and Diogo Dalot showing signs of inexperience, Manchester United need to sign a new right-back this summer. They've spent a lot of their time so far focusing on the acquisition of Crystal Palace youngster Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but with the Eagles reportedly holding out for £60 million, any chance of a deal could be dead in the water.

Turning to Matt Doherty arguably makes more sense through the Republic of Ireland right-back being more experienced to provide an equal balance against Diogo Dalot, but they'll face a fight from Tottenham Hotspur, who could be more appetising to Doherty based on their Champions League final appearance and the guarantee of Champions League football next season.

Shouts of Spurs needing a new right-back aren't entirely crucial to the same extent as Manchester United - Serge Aurier potentially stepping up to the plate more next season - but time could be up for Kieran Trippier after he presented his worst ever performances.

Last year's World Cup showed Trippier as being one of the most multi-talented full-backs in Europe, but that changed quickly when he looked incapable of defending for a lot of the Premier League season. His future at the club is up for debate, with both Napoli and Atletico Madrid reportedly interested in offering him an exit route out of North London.
