White Hart Lane side given fresh hope in pursuit of Bernabeu forward.
Tottenham have been given new hope in their pursuit of Real Madrid youngster Jese Rodriguez, report Sky Sports News.
The North London club, along with Manchester City have been tracking the young star over the past year in hope of securing a deal to sign the Spaniard. Rodriguez has admitted that he may have to search for a new club this summer if he is not guaranteed a more prominent role in the Madrid line-up next term.
The 20-year old forward scored 22 goals last season in the Segunda division with the Castilla side, and also was heavily impressive during Spain’s U20 World Cup campaign which ended prematurely. Regarded as one of Spain’s hottest young prospects, Rodriguez’s current deal expires at the end of the 2013/14 season.
Tottenham are readying a bid for the talented young attacker, believed to be in the region of £8.5million as Andre Villas-Boas continues his squad make-over ahead of the upcoming season, where they aim to finally secure a Top 4 finish. Jese recently spoke about his future at Madrid.
“I don’t know what the club wants with me. I assume they will want to offer me a renewal but I don’t know what I will do. I’m not going to lie about it,” he told Marca prior to their World Cup exit.
“I am calm about my future. I’ve had a good season and I’m doing well at the World Cup now. I’m relaxed. Once the World Cup is over, we’ll open talks to discuss my future.”
