Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Kamil Glik, but he has given mixed signals over his future.

Tottenham Hotspur linked defender Kamil Glik has given mixed signals over his future, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The Sun reported at the weekend Spurs are targeting the Torino centre-back, who is a Poland international and has scored six goals for his club this season.

TMW report Glik has admitted to Polish television programme TV Extra that he is committed to Torino for now, but open to a new challenge in the future.

He said: "One day I would like to play in Barcelona or Real Madrid (but) the Premier League suits me, for the physicality I have. For now, though, I'm not going to change clubs. I want to end the contract with Torino."

Glik has a contract at Torino until 2017, meaning if he can keep his word, Tottenham will have a two year wait until being able to sign him.

Currently the defender is 27-years-old, and so by time he becomes a free agent he will arguably be beyond the sort of age profile Spurs look for when targeting new signings.

Players of course often say the right things in regard to wanting to see out their contracts and land up moving on anyway if their club makes a decision to sell as is suggested in The Sun's report, so if Spurs are determined to snap him up this summer, they can take encouragement from his assertion he would be a good fit for the Premier League.
