Tottenham are chasing Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio.

The Daly Mail says Spurs are showing an interest in Musacchio.

The tough Argentine defender has impressed a lot of scouts in recent years. He is not the tallest but reads the game well and has all the hallmarks of former Argentina captain Daniel Passarella.

He is well known to Mauricio Pochettino who is looking to toughen up his defence and has already shown he is willing to listen to offers for Michael Dawson while doubts remain over Younes Kaboul.
