Tottenham and Sunderland are both believed to be keen on Valencia midfielder Ever Banega.

The Mirror is reporting that Spurs have joined the race for the 25-year old Argentine who spent part of last season on loan with Newell's Old Boys.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is keen to bring Banega to the Stadium of Light but Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is now being linked.

Banega, who started his career with Boca Juniors, could be sold for about £5million this summer.
