Rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Ramiz Zerrouki has admitted that he wants to stay at FC Twente and continue his development.

Zerrouki established himself as a regular in Twente’s starting eleven last season and his impressive performances have been rewarded with a call up to the Algerian national side. 

The central midfielder area is rumoured to be one of the positions that Fabio Paratici is keen on bolstering this summer.

Fennec Football reported last month that Zerrouki had not only caught Tottenham’s eye but was also attracting interest from France.

The report explained that while Ron Jans’ side were willing to cash in on the 23-year-old since he has only two years left on his contract, the player would prefer to stay at Twente for one more season.

Zerrouki himself has now confirmed his intention to stay put at the Eredivisie club, insisting that it is the ideal environment for him to continue developing his skill set.

When asked about the speculation surrounding his future, the midfielder told Tubantia: “Of course, you never know how things will turn out, but I’m not thinking about other options at all.

“I see enough points for improvement here and FC Twente is the ideal environment for me to develop further.  

“Last season was nice, but that doesn’t count anymore. I have to continue now.”

Even though Zerrouki seems to have ruled out a move to Spurs this summer, there could potentially be some great deals to be had in the Eredivisie market this summer given how much the pandemic has impacted the finances of various Dutch clubs.
