There are a few reports building in the Spanish media about Pau Torres turning Tottenham Hotspur down.

This was first reported a couple of days ago, and at the time Sport Witness spoke to a source close to the player who rubbished the claim… in the strongest possible terms. At that time, the same source also said “There’s nothing” going on with Tottenham.

Despite that, the claims continue.

Sunday’s edition of AS has an article on Spurs and and the Villarreal player, and starts off by saying: ‘Pau Torres said no to Tottenham’s offer without hesitation’

They then explain the Premier League club haven’t given up and are ‘willing to increase’ their proposal to the player to tempt him to move to London. Villarreal are thought to be ready to accept around €55m, and it’s very much presented as the player pushing the whole thing away.

Despite a ‘dizzy’ offer, AS say people close to Pau Torres believe his future at Villarreal is ‘safe’ for the coming season, and he won’t be going anywhere.
