The 20-year-old has enjoyed a sensational rise over the past 18 months, culminating in a spot in the Spain World Cup squad.

Pino enjoyed a breakout campaign for Villarreal last year, scoring six goals and adding four assists in 21 starts.

He also featured seven times as the Yellow Submarines reached the Champions League semi-finals.

And this season, Pino has clocked up 19 appearances – 13 in La Liga and six in the Conference League.

As well as Tottenham, the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea are apparently monitoring the youngster.

‘We will see in 2023’

Romano responded to the speculation by telling CaughtOffside: “I’m aware of some recent Tottenham and Chelsea transfer rumours.

“And I can say it’s normal that many clubs in England including London clubs are following Yeremy Pino.

“He’s a top talent and he’s represented by Stellar Group which is super strong in the Premier League.

“At the moment there are no advanced talks yet, we will see in 2023.

“I’m not sure he’s going to leave in January unless a big proposal arrives.”

Pino is one of Europe’s most exciting youngsters and looks set for an exciting future in the game.

Fans on Twitter have compared him to the likes of Bukayo Saka, Eden HazardFerran Torres and ‘prime Alexis Sanchez‘.

However, with Pino’s contract running until 2027 and a host of clubs after his services, Tottenham have quite a battle on their hands.
