Tottenham are reportedly lining up a big money offer for Athletic Bilbao youngster Iker Muniain according to TuttoMercato.

White Hart Lane boss Tim Sherwood is ready to offer €22m (£18m) for 21 year old attacker, who can play as a central forward or in his more common role out on either flank.

Muniain had been strongly linked with interest from a number of Europe’s ‘Elite’ a year ago but the chase had gone cold until recent weeks when he once again found himself the subject of growing speculation.

Despite his tender years the flair player is into his fifth season in Bilbao’s first team set-up and already has 195 appearances to his name and earned his first full Spanish national team cap in February 2012.

A move to the Premier League may interest Muniain though the fact that his side are mounting a genuine challenge for a Champions League spot may put such a move on hold, especially as the financial rewards of securing a top four finish may negate the need for the Basque side to cash in on the young talent.

Sherwood may be keen to boost his side’s attack given their relatively low goal tally this term but may have to look elsewhere to resolve the problem area.
