Tottenham are keen on signing a defensive midfielder this summer but so far they are losing out on their targets.
The North Londoners were interested in three French holding midfielders. Monaco’s Kondgobia opted to join Inter Milan, Imbula has recently completed move to Primeira Liga giants Porto while Schneiderlin seems to be on his way to Man United.
There is a new name in the lime light now as Tottenham are interested in signing Spanish international and Atletico Madrid’s defensive midfield star Mario Suarez. Express claim that Inter Milan are also linked but having secured Kondogbia, they really do not need another DM.
Suarez featured in 35 games for Diego Simeone’s men last season but was never a regular starter and hence his future is in doubt. He scored 2 goals and provided an assist as well.
As per Spanish source Marca, Suarez has a release clause of $13.3 million in his contract. If he does join, Suarez should start in midfield with Bentaleb for Spurs.
Here is how Spurs will line up with Mario Suarez.
