Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Serie A side test the water with €9m offer for midfield star

A round up of the latest transfer stories about Tottenham Hotspur.

Napoli have reportedly made a €9 million offer for Tottenham midfielder Etienne Capoue.

The Frenchman only joined the club last summer but has already attracted the interest of the Serie A club looking to poach him away.

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez is thought to be keen on adding a top quality holding midfield player to his squad.

Juventus have apparently shelved plans to try and sign Erik Lamela from Tottenham Hotspur.

There have been plenty of reports this month, which have suggested the Argentinian could join the Serie A giants on loan for the rest of the season.

However, the Old Lady appear to have given up on that possibility with Tottenham refusing to let the player leave.

One player who is unlikely to be heading the other way from Juventus is Andrea Pirlo.

Spurs are one of the clubs linked with making a move for the Italian legend but Juventus have hinted that a resolution to a contract dispute will be found.

“Pirlo's contract? He said last week that he feels happy here. We have talked with each other and in February we will find a solution to continue together,” general director Giuseppe Marotta told Radio Rai.
