The Lowdown: Tottenham Hotspur take shape as 2021/22 nears
Getting 2021/22 underway both domestically and in Europe, Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo will be keen to explore all avenues to strengthen key areas of his new-look side.
Recruiting intelligently, the Portuguese manager has brought in three additions in the form of Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil [Transfermarkt].
Now, they could be set to welcome another talented figure to their roster owing to recent reports.
Would Torres be a good signing for Spurs?
The Latest: Spurs working on a deal for Pau Torres
Speaking to her large Twitter audience, Spanish speaking journalist Veronica Brunati communicated a message which translated to the following:
“Man City prepares a 150 million euro offer for Harry Kane. The player wants to leave. Tottenham at the same time works on the hiring of Pau Torres, Villarreal defender.”
Torres was previously in talks with Manchester United, before the Red Devils elected to swoop for Real Madrid icon Raphael Varane [TEAMtalk].
His prospective arrival from Villareal could be marketed to convince talisman Harry Kane to stay in North London, amid increasing links with Manchester City which were also documented by Brunati [Express].
The Verdict: Torres would be an astute signing for the Lilywhites
Seeking to launch another challenge for a top four finish and some silverware this year, Torres would be an exciting import who could bring Tottenham closer to this reality.
