Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is eyeing Valencia midfielder Ever Banega.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland boss Gus Poyet looks to be pole position to land the Argentina man ahead of next season.

But new Spurs boss Pochettino, a compatriot of Banega, is also a fan and is keen to explore a move for the 25-year-old.

He was sent out on loan to Newell's Old Boys last season and is likely to be available for around £5.5million this summer.
