The Lowdown: Spurs eye new defender…
Spurs head coach Antonio Conte is thought to be after a left-sided central defender for his backline but the Italian was dealt a major blow on Wednesday afternoon.
Torres, coming as another defensive target, has been mentioned as a potential signing in recent months with Sky Italy now sharing a big update on Spurs’ attempts.
The Latest: Sky share big Torres update…
According to the broadcast giant, via Get Italian Football News, the north Londoners are now working on a deal to sign Torres and a swap deal is also on the cards.
Sky claim that midfielder Giovani Lo Celso will be included in any deal with Villarreal for their star defender as transfer chief Fabio Paratici gets moving before pre-season.

The Verdict: Get it done
The Spain international, called ‘sensational‘ by his national team boss Luis Enrique, would come as a real upgrade for Conte’s back three.
As per WhoScored, only goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli played more La Liga minutes than Torres over 2021/2022 with manager Unai Emery clearly viewing him as indispensable.
In that time, the 25-year-old averaged Villarreal’s joint-highest rate of aerial duels won per 90 whilst also making the second-most clearances – backing just how solid and reliable he could be if Spurs bring him to the Premier League.
