Tottenham could put a major summer entry on sale at the end of the season if their form does not improve significantly.
Matt doherty joined Spurs from Wolves last summer for £ 15million. However, he struggled to make a major impact in his first season in North London.
Indeed, the international of the Republic of Ireland has often been neglected in favor of the much criticized Serge Aurier.
According to ESPN, Jose Mourinho has doubts as to whether Doherty can be a success at the club.
The 29-year-old has struggled to adjust, moving from a fullback role at Wolves to a full back four at Spurs.
He has only made nine Premier League starts this season and lost to Japhet Tanganga in Sunday derby loss to West Ham.
Doherty, however, came at half time of the game. He also, arguably, had his best outing in a Spurs jersey during last week’s Europa clash against Wolfsberger.
However, it looks like Mourinho is not convinced, which leaves the player’s future in limbo.

Doherty is fighting for his place
Doherty has a contract that runs until 2024, while the report adds that he is determined to fight for his place.
In all likelihood, Aurier is more likely to be moved than Doherty in the summer.
Côte d’Ivoire have had an impressive start to the season, but the mistakes that haunted them last year have started creeping into their game again.
Tanganga, meanwhile, is still seen as a center-back capable of playing right-back if needed.
To that end, Doherty will likely get another season to prove his worth. Although that is under Mourinho remains to be seen, as Spurs’ form continues to sag.
