Transfer News: Villarreal defender Pau Torres speaks about the interest from Tottenham Hotspur

In an interview with Sid Lowe on Guardian sport (h/t Fabrizio Romano), Spanish defender Pau Torres talked about the interest from Tottenham Hotspur

The 24-year-old defender has made his way through the B team and has rightfully cemented his place in the Villarreal CF senior squad at the moment. He plays an instrumental role at the back and helps the Spanish club hold a tight ship.

The Spanish professional footballer has already managed to play 101 games for the La Liga club across all competitions till now. During that time he has scored six goals and provided four assists for El Submarino Amarillo.

Torres highlighted the wish of playing in the prestigious UEFA Champions League with his hometown club:

“The pull of playing the Champions League with the team from my town was bigger. The president didn’t put pressure on me, even though they could make a lot of money. I appreciated it”

The young defender was being linked to the Lilwyhites but a move did not ultimately transpire between both parties. Spurs could have used another youngster in their ranks to help future proof the backline at N-17.

With the latest injury issues to Cristian Romero, the North London club could be forced to dip into the transfer market to look at suitable replacements. The 23-year-old Italian had started to cement his place in their defensive setup and his absence may be a big blow to Tottenham in the coming days.

Torres has also opened up about the fact that the president of the Spanish club did not put much pressure on him despite the opportunity to carve out a lucrative deal for the defender. This goes to show the belief that the club’s hierarchy have in the centre-back and his abilities.
