The race for Tottenham midfielder Iago Falque is heating up.

After a successful spell on-loan with Rayo Vallecano last season, Falque has attracted interest from Italy and Spain.

Rayo want to sign him permanently, however, they'll face competition from Valencia and Sevilla, says Estadio Deportivo.

But Falque could still stay with Spurs next season after the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as new manager.
