Report: La Liga club open to idea of selling centre-back linked with Tottenham

Fichajes.net have now claimed that Villarreal might decide that this summer is the right time to cash in on Tottenham target Pau Torres.

We covered a report from Football Transfers earlier this week, which claimed that Tottenham are expected to reignite their interest in Torres this summer after having an offer of €48.5m (£42.6m) bid rejected by Villarreal for him around 12 months ago.

The publication asserted that Spurs could face competition from Juventus and Aston Villa for the 26-year-old, with Unai Emery said to be keen on reuniting with the player at Villa Park.

The exact same information has now also been reported by Fichajes, who name Tottenham, Villa and Juve as the three clubs who are currently keeping a close eye on Torres’ situation.

The report explains that the Spain international is set to enter the final year of his contract at El Madrigal this June and Villarreal have not ruled out the possibility of offering him a new deal.

However, the La Liga club are said to be aware that Torres might receive a tempting offer from elsewhere and may want to leave, which is why they are open to the possibility of cashing in on him.

Spurs Web Opinion

Torres is a talented defender and one can argue that he would be an upgrade on Lenglet but there is a possibility that he could struggle to cope with the physicality of the Premier League. 

I personally think there are a lot more upsides to signing the likes of Josko Gvardiol and Even Ndicka compared to the Spaniard.
