River Plate winger Carlos Sanchez is a £7.5 million target for Tottenham.

The Mirror says the Uruguayan-born winger has been checked by the club’s scouts – and they have been impressed with the 28-year-old’s ­performances in Argentina.

His arrival would increase the options of manager Andre Villas-Boas as he looks to push for trophies in the second half of his first season at White Hart Lane. The target is a top-four ­finish in the ­Premier League as well as a Europa League campaign and an FA Cup run.
