Tottenham are watching River Plate midfielder Leonardo Ponzio.

The 30 year-old, once of Real Zaragoza, is aware of the presence of Tottenham scouts at River games.

"I knew that some people came to see me in the match against Boca and I think at another game as well. Nobody talked to me about a possible transfer or real interest. Anyway, about my future, I feel very comfortable where I am and I feel respected. I would like to seize this moment," said Ponzio.
