The defender has made 99 appearances for Espanyol over the last three seasons, cementing his reputation as one of the league’s best defenders outside the big three of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
He was signed for the club in 2011 by current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The club’s president Joan Collet admitted in recent days that Moreno had attracted the interest of a foreign club, but added that he couldn’t say more at this stage.
It is rumoured the deal would cost around £16,000,000.
