Transfer window: Tottenham scouts invade Villarreal camp for defender Pau Torres

Tottenham chiefs are eyeing Villarreal defender Pau Torres for the summer market.

The Daily Mail says Tottenham watched Torres on Tuesday night during his side’s Champions League defeat to Liverpool.

The 25-year old, who is one of the most sought-after centre backs in Europe and has a buy out clause set at £55million, has been on Tottenham’s wanted list for the past two years but resisted their attempts to sign him last year as he wanted to play for a Champions League club.

That decision was vindicated as he reached the semi finals of the competition and is now established as one of Spain’s top three centre halves going into the World Cup.

However, Torres now feels it is time in his career to make a move and test himself on another stage giving Tottenham encouragement they could strike a deal.
