Tottenham have joined the battle for Valencia midfield schemer Ever Banega.

The Daily Express says reports in Spain suggest that Tottenham have leapt to the front of the queue for Banega, although Manchester United remain in close pursuit with Arsenal and Southampton also linked.

Valencia are reluctant to see the 25-year-old leave but may have little option if they receive a reasonable offer as they continue to battle financial problems.
