Premier League rivals line up for closer look at Argentinian ace.
Valencia midfielder Ever Banega is now being tracked by Tottenham Hotspur as well as being an initial target for defending Premier League champions Manchester United, according to reports in Sports Direct News.
The Argentine international has been one of Valencia’s best performers in La Liga this season and rumours close to the club have hinted that Manchester United could be standing by with a bid of around £20m to prize him away from the Mestalla next summer.
However, it is now believed that Spurs are preparing a bid of their own to Hijack David Moyes’ interest in the player and take him to White Heart Lane instead.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas could even look to complete the deal in January as he faces losing the likes of midfield pair Moussa Dembele and Sandro in the new year anyway as both players are attracting significant interest from Serie A.
Tottenham have also struggled for goals this term and Banega could provide a more viable creative spark in the centre of the pitch whilst United have also been looking into bringing creative players on board since the retirement of Paul Scholes at the end of last season.
