Tottenham have been given a major boost to their hopes of landing a €38million midfield target in the new year.
Napoli star Amadou Diawara is the player in question and has indicated that his next move could be to the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster his central midfield in January, with doubts over the long-term futures of Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko, and Diawara is believed to a major target for the Spurs chief.
The Guinea international has struggled to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli side, leading to his agent demanding showdown talks with the Serie A club’s hierarchy over the player’s future.
Napoli rejected a €38m bid for the player over the summer, while recent reports are suggesting that Wolves are ready to rival Spurs for the 21-year-old.
The report on Calciomercato goes on to add that Diawara’s future is expected to be sorted one way or another in the January transfer window but that England remains the player’s preferred destination.
