Tottenham readying a bid for Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapie

Tottenham are readying a bid for Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapie.

Spurs are rumoured to be lining up a £25million bid for the Ecuador international.

Hincapie, 20, was a regular for Bayer Leverkusen in the recent campaign, helping the German outfit to a third-place finish in the Bundesliga.

And his form has attracted the attention of Tottenham and Antonio Conte, according to journalist Ekrem Konur.

The youngster is a natural centre-back but can also fill in at left-back if necessary.

Hincapie has European experience after heavily featuring in Leverkusen's run to last-sixteen of the Europa League.
