Tottenham have been linked with a £20m bid for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Aguera Herrera.
He starred in Spain’s Euro under-21 winning campaign and La Liga strugglers Bilbao insist they will only listen to bid in excess of £15m.
Given how highly regarded the 22 year-old is and Harry Redknapp’s policy of signing endless amounts of midfielders, it is natural that Herrera has been linked with a switch to White Hart Lane.
The young winger only moved to the Basque club this summer form Zaragoza for an undisclosed fee, but it is rumoured that they would cash in on any substantial offers.
Although Bilbao secured a sixth place finish last season and qualified for the group stage of the Europa League, they are currently second from bottom in La Liga with 2 points from 5 games.
The main sticking point is Herrera’s current knee injury, which could leave him on the treatment table for another month. He will need to return to fitness and put in some impressive performances if Spurs are to part with that sort of money for a relatively inexperienced player.
