Tottenham Hotspur’s hunt for a centre-back extends to the other continent as they set their sight on Uruguayan defender Sebastian Caceres.
Spurs have been actively exploring options to sign a new defender in the January transfer window and have been linked with the likes of Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo, Genoa’s Radu Dragusin and Sporting Lisbon’s Goncalo Inacio.
Another name being strongly linked with Spurs is Sebastian Caceres.
Mexican transfer expert Fernando Esquivel previously revealed Tottenham’s formal offer to Club America for Caceres, indicating ongoing negotiations between the parties.
Esquivel further noted that Caceres and his representatives have signaled their approval for the move, awaiting Club America’s response in the imminent days.
The centre-back currently plays for CF America in the Mexican top division and is under contract until December, 2024.
As per the latest from Tuttomercatoweb, Serie A side Torino are also interested in signing Caceres, and reportedly even submitted a £6 million bid.
However, the Italian club are worried that a rejection of their bid might indicate Uruguayan’s potential move to the Premier League.
Caceres was one of the best central defenders in the division and played a pivotal role in his team’s league success in Liga MX this year, and would be a great signing for Spurs.
