The 19-year-old has been impressing for the Basque club this season and his performances had even alerted Barcelona before they were slapped with a transfer ban last month.

Earlier this week, though, Tottenham sent a scout to take in Laporte’s appearance in a 3-0 La Liga win over Malaga.

However, German giants Bayern Munich have also been watching him for some time, and are believed to be ready to test Bilbao’s resolve with an offer of their own at the end of the campaign.

Bilbao are said to be desperate to keep him, though, and are thought to be in the process of preparing a new deal to keep him at San Mames, but they are acutely aware that they face a fight to do so.

Laporte has made 30 appearances in La Liga for Bilbao this season, and has even managed to chalk up two goals to his name too.

He is still under contract with the club until 2018, so the club are under no pressure to sell.
