Tottenham news: Pau Torres targeted while £30million offer considered

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is still keen to bring in Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres despite the club inching towards the loan signing of Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet.

The Spurs coach made it one of his top priorities this summer to bring in a left-footed centre-back and that should happen this week with Lenglet set to join the club on loan. But that will not end the club’s interest in Torres and they could still make a move for the highly-rated defender.

It comes as Spurs weigh up a £30million bid for Barcelona forward Memphis Depay. And the Tottenham Hotspur players have returned to the club’s Hotspur Way training complex for the first day of pre-season.

Torres targeted

Antonio Conte remains interested in Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres despite Spurs being about to fulfil his request of signing a left-footed centre-back this summer.

Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet is due to move to the Premier League outfit on loan, but it appears Conte wants two players capable of playing the position. Torres has reportedly risen to the top of Tottenham’s defensive shopping list after missing out on primary target Alessandro Bastoni from Inter Milan.

While Manchester United are also keen on Torres, they appear to be prioritising a move for Ajax centre-back Lisandro Martinez. And Spurs could offer Giovani Lo Celso, who impressed while on loan at Villarreal last season, as part of their move.

Spurs consider £30m Depay bid

Spurs could target Barcelona forward in a £30million move, according to reports.

The Dutchman has entered the final year of his contract at Camp Nou and the Spanish outfit’s precarious financial situation means they may look to cahs in on him this summer rather than risk losing him for nothing in a year’s time. And with Steven Bergwijn set to seal his own £30million move to Ajax, Spurs boss Antonio Conte wants the money invested back into his playing squad for a direct replacement.

And according to reports coming out of Spain, Depay has been mentioned during negotiations for Clement Lenglet who is due to move to the north London club this week on loan.
