The backline for Tottenham Hotspur is an area in the squad manager Antonio Conte this summer to put alongside Eric Dier and Cristian Romero. Over the past couple of months, various players have been linked to the north London club to fill this role, writes the BoyHotspur.
However, one name Spurs have been keen on since last year is Villarreal’s Pau Torres. However, the Spain international decided to remain with The Yellow Submarine to play UEFA Champions League football this season.
Nonetheless, Tottenham is recircling its interest in the 25-year-old and now are preparing an offer to make sure this summer they do indeed bring Torres to north London.
According to Cadena SAR (via Spurs Web), the north London club has submitted a £42.5m offer to Villarreal for Torres. Despite the proposal, the Spanish media outlet states that the central defender has his heart set on moving to Manchester United.
It will be interesting to see if Spurs can convince Torres that their project under Conte is a better option than what Manchester United offers.
