The Romanian has an up and down debut season at White Hart Lane and does not appear to be part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans this term and a move to Turin would certainly tempt the former Steaua Bucharest man.

Juventus scouts were in attendance to watch Chiriches on international duty as his Romanian side defeated Northern Ireland on Friday night and the Serie A giants were suitably impressed.

Massimiliano Allegri will look to bring in Chiriches on an initial loan deal with a permanent move to follow in the summer.

The 24 year old appears ready to quit Spurs, stating recently;

He said: “I don’t know anything about the links but right now I can’t say that I am very happy at the club because I am not in the team.

“It’s hard for me, but I think I can improve my game and I can play.”

Chiriches has started just two Premier League fixtures this term and by all accounts Pochettino is under pressure to trim his squad if he is reinvest in new additions in January and as such selling the centre-back may be a wise option to consider.
