Tottenham have made contact with AC Milan over the possibility of signing defender Ricardo Rodriguez this summer, according to reports in Italy.
Rodriguez was part of the Switzerland team that lost 1-0 to Sweden in the Round of 16 at the World Cup.
The 25-year-old joined Milan from Wolfsburg last summer and scored three goals for the Italian giants during his first season in Serie A.
And according to Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, Spurs are keen on sealing a deal for the left-back, although the report claims Rodriguez is currently happy at Milan.
The player’s agent has since responded to the reports, telling Di Marzio: “The rumours about Tottenham? There’s no truth to them, we haven’t had any contacts with them.
“If in next few weeks Tottenham call we can discuss it, but as of now that is not the case. I’m not sure why it was written, often things are invented concerning Ricardo’s future.”
Tottenham could move for a new left-back this summer if Mauricio Pochettino allows Danny Rose to leave the club.
Rose has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, but those rumours have gone quiet in recent weeks and it seems there is a good chance he will stay at Spurs.
