Tottenham are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, according to reports in Spain.
The 23-year-old is believed to have fallen down the pecking order at Camp Nou following the signing of former Spurs midfielder Paulinho — yes, that really happened.
Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claims Napoli are the frontrunners for Suarez’s signature, but Tottenham are keen to hijack the deal.
Suarez apparently has a €40 million release clause in his contract. Napoli are reportedly willing to offer €35m.

I can’t see Spurs spending such a large amount on a central midfielder given the talent they already possess in that position.
Below you can watch a couple of well-taken Suarez goals from last season.
