Tottenham are working on a deal to sign Celta Vigo midfielder Pape Chiekh Diop, according to reports.
ESPN’s Spurs correspondent Dan Kilpatrick, usually reliable on all things Tottenham, has revealed the club have been keen on Diop all summer and have now made an initial move to sign the player.

According to Kilpatrick, the 20-year-old is a highly-rated central midfielder who has been capped by Spain twice at under-20s level.
Right now he’d probably find it hard to break into the Spurs starting line-up, but he certainly seems like one for the future.
Diop made his La Liga debut in January 2016.
