Report: Spurs-linked defender has been offered to Bayern Munich instead

Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg has revealed that Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres, who is rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar, has been offered to Bayern Munich.

Tottenham are thought to be prioritising a move for a left-sided centre-back this summer, with 90 min reporting last week that Manchester United’s Harry Maguire, Manchester City’s Aymeric Laporte and Wovles‘ Max Kilman are on the club’s radar.

It was previously reported by Football Transfers last month that Spurs could battle Aston Villa and Juventus for Torres this summer.

The publication claimed that the Lilywhites had an offer turned down for the Spaniard last summer and could reignite their pursuit of the player once again.

Pau Torres has been offered to Bayern Munich

If Plettenberg’s latest update is to be believed, the Villarreal star has now been offered to Bayern.

However, the journalist adds while the 26-year-old is on the Bundesliga giants’ list, he is not their top choice and that negotiations are not advanced at the moment.

Spurs Web Opinion

Based on the centre-backs we have been linked with, it appears as if Spurs are prioritising someone with Premier League experience for the left centre-back role.

Among the names who have been mooted, Laporte is undoubtedly the one who best fits Postecoglou’s style of play.
