Spanish defender turns down move to Tottenham Hotspur
Villarreal defender Pau Torres has rejected a summer move to Tottenham Hotspur, a report from ESPN claims.
The Spaniard has built his reputation with the Yellow Submarines, and he has been touted for a big-club move this summer.
Torres was heavily linked with Manchester United earlier in the transfer window before they prioritised a move for Raphael Varane.
It was recently claimed that Spurs had entered the race for his services, but they have faced disappointment in the transfer pursuit.
Torres has rejected the advances from the north London giants as he wants to play for a Champions League-based club next term.
He could stick make the switch to the Premier League with reports claiming that Chelsea are mulling over a possible approach.
The west London giants have seen the emergence of Trevoh Chalobah recently, and they could abandon their centre-back search.
Chalobah made his Premier League debut against Crystal Palace today. He scored the final goal in the 3-0 win with a stellar long-range effort.
