Tottenham may hijack Napoli’s Denis Suarez deal

Tottenham, Napoli & Denis Suarez

Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo pique the interests of Tottenham fans on Wednesday linking them to Barcelona’s Denis Suarez.

Suarez, 23, has been tipped to complete a summer exit from Barcelona for several days. Napoli are at the front of the queue.

It comes at the same time that Barcelona have signed Paulinho from China, while other high-profile Barcelona youngsters, including Sergi Samper, are being linked with Camp Nou departures.

Many are slamming Barcelona’s board right now for turning their back on the club’s famed youth system.

Mundo Deportivo update

According to reports out of Spain, Napoli are “crazy” about Denis Suarez.

Napoli are willing to offer €35 million for Suarez, but that’s unlikely to be good enough for Barcelona.

That’s because Suarez has a €40 million release clause in his contract.

Tottenham to hijack deal?

Mundo Deportivo also report that Tottenham are lurking in the background looking at Denis Suarez.

But will Tottenham, who are yet to sign a player this summer, pull the trigger?

Perhaps. Suarez seems to fit the mould of a Mauricio Pochettino signing, being young, exciting and with bags of potential.

Denis returned to Camp Nou from Villarreal last summer but made just 20 appearances in 2016-17.
