The experienced centre-half has long been a transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur, as reported by Spanish publication AS, and two months ago spoke of the speculation linking him with a move to White Hart Lane.
“Right now I don’t know [what the future holds]. All I want to do is play, have minutes, be able to feel important at Espanyol. For now [Spurs] are just rumours,” he was quoted as saying by AS.
"My dream is to play with the best teams in the world, play in European competitions, and be fighting for titles. I work for it, but now my reality is Espanyol, my reality is to earn a spot in the starting line-up.”
Moreno joined the Catalan outfit from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar and became a key player for the Spaniards under then-boss Mauricio Pochettino.
His ties to the Argentine coach are evident, and it may have looked for a long time that a January move to Spurs was on the cards, yet such a deal subsequently never materialised.
However, with the recent signing of Gabriel Paulista adding to strength in depth at the back at the Emirates, it’s difficult to see the North Londoners wanting yet another defender in six months’ time.
Moreno, 27, has been capped 57 times by his country and should he be available in the summer, don’t be surprised to see him once again pop up on Pochettino’s radar.
