They have already secured a deal for 2020/2021 Serie A MVP award-winner Cristian Romero but are yet to find his complimentary centre-half partner or back up option.

Now, Sepulveda has brought an update on Tottenham’s pursuit of Torres.

The Latest: Sepulveda drops Torres claim…

Writing on Twitter, the reporter has shared some Spurs news involving the 24-year-old and Fabio Paratici’s advances.

He believes that Villarreal ‘accepted an offer’ from Tottenham amounting to around €45 million (£38.2m) plus an extra €5 million (£4.2m) in add-ons, but Torres himself has swiftly rejected the move.

“Pau Torres refused to go to Spurs,” he explained on social media.

“Villarreal accepted an offer of 45 million euros + 5 million in goals but the defender refused to join the English club.

“Pau Torres says he wants to play in the Champions League.”

The Verdict: Blow for Spurs?

While a move for the 6 foot 3 powerhouse was always an uphill battle, we believe losing out on Torres is a blow for Nuno.

Former Arsenal boss Unai Emery, now manager of Villarreal, is certainly a huge fan – with the 49-year-old head coach branding Torres ‘amazing’ in an interview with football.london.

The centre-back was also a mainstay and one of the stars of Spain’s run to the semi-finals of Euro 2020.

Still in his early 20s, Torres also would’ve came with the potential for a big sell-on value in years to come.
