Real Madrid midfielder Illarramendi pondering Tottenham offer

Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi is reportedly weighing up a possible move to Premier League club Tottenham.


Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo is reporting Illarramendi will leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer and is currently contemplating his next move, with a number of suitors interested in the 25-year-old's services.

Real Sociedad are believed to be the frontrunners for Illarramendi's signature, although the Spaniard has reportedly asked for additional time to consider offers from Juventus and Spurs.

It is understood Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is eager to bolster his midfield stocks having sold Etienne Capoue, Paulinho and Benjamin Stambouli this summer.
