Tottenham have pulled out of a deal to sign Pau Lopez, according to reports in Spain.
The Spanish goalkeeper joined on a temporary deal last August, and Spurs had apparently made a €2 million offer to his parent club Espanyol in a bid to sign the 22-year-old this summer.
Earlier this week, talks between the clubs were said to be are ongoing as Espanyol held out for a fee of around €7 million.
Now, according to Spanish outlet Sport, Tottenham have pulled the plug on the deal. The report claims Spurs have dropped their interest in Lopez as they are not willing to increase their initial offer.
Of course, this could simply be mind games from Daniel Levy. If Tottenham claim they are no longer interested in Lopez, perhaps Espanyol will lower their asking price if they truly want to sell the goalkeeper.
Lopez will find if difficult to break into the first team at Spurs ahead of captain Hugo Lloris and reserve goalkeeper Michel Vorm, although Vorm has been linked with a move away.
