Tottenham Hotspur were among the clubs to have shown interest in Atalanta’s Éderson in the winter market.

On January 24th, Corriere Bergamo reported the Serie A side had blocked an approach from Spurs for the midfielder.

The Premier League side have continued to follow the 24-year-old and Tutto Atalanta stated last month that they are in love with him.

Tottenham’s interest is now backed in Spain by Marca when discussing Atlético Madrid’s plans to sign him.

It’s claimed the Brazilian is one of the great objectives for Diego Simeone’s side, and their leaders are working together to try and get this deal over the line in the summer.

Los Rojiblancos were keen on signing a new midfielder before the start of this season but failed.

They took 19-year-old Arthur Vermeeren from Royal Antwerp in January and a new attempt will be made to strengthen the middle of the pitch in the next window.

Éderson is the chosen one and the La Liga side have to be wary of Tottenham, who have him ‘on their radar’.

Marca add the South American is valued at €30m and the ‘negotiation would surely be long’ to secure his services, likely because Spurs aren’t going to make things easy for the LaLiga side.
