Tottenham go for Espanyol defender Dani Jarque

Tottenham are chasing Espanyol defender Dani Jarque.

The Mirror says Juande Ramos tried to sign Jarque, 24, while in charge of Sevilla and the Spanish defender is also a target for Atletico Madrid and Villarreal.

Jarque already has a relationship with Ramos and that could be the key in luring him to White Hart Lane.

Jarque said: "I know Ramos and I know he is an excellent coach. As a player, you only want to progress but going to England would be a great move."
