Report: Tottenham scouted Pau Torres against Liverpool on Tuesday

Tottenham scouted Pau Torres against Liverpool on Tuesday as Villarreal threatened to produce an incredible comeback and reach the Champions League final, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

Spurs have wanted the centre-back for some time. In fact, Unai Emery confirmed last summer that Tottenham had made a bid for Torres. However, the offer fell short of the Yellow Submarine’s valuation.

Torres meanwhile, noted that playing in the Champions League prompted him to snub Spurs.

And Torres has been vindicated for staying in La Liga this year. Villarreal, of course, went on an incredible run to reach the last four in Europe. They knocked Juventus and Bayern Munich out on their way to facing Liverpool.

And when it seemed that the tie was done and dusted, Villarreal came from 2-0 down after the first-leg to go into half-time in the rematch level on aggregate. Ultimately of course, it was Liverpool who got themselves across the line.

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham scouted Torres in the game. The 25-year-old meanwhile, does believe that the time is now right to move.

He has a release clause worth £55 million. And Villarreal are thought to want a figure close to that amount.

Manchester United and Manchester City also want Torres. But the report claims that Tottenham believe that they can provide the ideal next step for the defender.

Tottenham fans will be extremely excited about the prospect of Torres ending up in North London. He is a classy defender, who could be perfect for the left-sided role in Antonio Conte’s back three.

Graham Roberts previously labelled him an ‘absolutely brilliant‘ centre-back last summer. And plenty of Spurs fans will agree.

It would appear that Tottenham are ready to make a fresh bid. And it would seem that Torres may now be ready to make the move.
