Could Tottenham, Newcastle or West Ham snap up Ezequiel Munoz for a bargain fee?

Palermo defender Ezequiel Munoz is available for just €2 million, report Tuttomercatoweb.

The centre-back was linked by the same website a month ago to three English clubs, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Newcastle United.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, the Serie A side are being backed into a corner with renewal talks breaking down.

The report states Palermo are currently in negotiations with AC Milan, and are asking the Rossoneri to front up the €2 million fee to do a deal.

The Argentine has recently lost his place in the Palermo side, with the club sporting director Beppe Iacherini quoted by Football Italia explaining that the talk over Munoz's future has affected his game.

At a bargain fee, the 24-year-old is surely worthy of consideration for the Premier League trio, who each could do with reinforcements at centre-back.

Tottenham have been linked with signing West Ham's Winston Reid by The Mail, and Munoz is an alternative, while for the Hammers, he is a potential replacement. 

Newcastle sold Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to Roma this week having had him out on loan all season, and the saving on his wages could potentially be put towards a player arriving in his place.

Each club could hope Munoz's contract is allowed to run down and consider snapping him up in the summer, but the current interest from AC Milan is making that option appear risky.
