White Hart Lane club showing keen interest in Colombian midfielder.
Inter President Massimo Moratti has confirmed that Tottenham are one of a number of clubs keen on securing the signature of Freddy Guarin according to Sporting Life.
The Colombian midfielder is thought to have attracted the attention of a number of European sides following a highly impressive season at the San Siro.
It is thought that Tottenham have been admirers of Guarin for some time and have now been persuaded to make their move for the 26 year old.
Inter are reluctant to sell Guarin as he has become an integral part of their time since joining from Porto last summer.
Tottenham may have to move soon if they wish to prevent being caught up in a bidding war. Wealthy Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala are also thought to be showing an interest and will likely be able to flex their financial muscle in order to price Tottenham out of a move.
But it is thought that Guarin would favour a move to the Premier League which could pave the way for a switch to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham know Guarin’s talents well after the two sides went head to head in last season’s Europa League in a tie which Tottenham eventually won on away goals.
