Former Italy defender Sebastiano Nela has praised Tottenham Hotspur linked Kamil Glik.

Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Kamil Glik has been praised by a former Italian international.

Glik was linked with an £8 million move from Torino to Spurs by The Sun earlier this month.

He has been an integral part of Torino's success in Serie A this season, and the centre-back is even the club's second highest top scorer.

Former Italian international Sebastiano Nela this week discussed the Polish defender in an interview with Tuttomercatoweb, and praised the 27-year-old as the club's best finisher.

He was keen to add that the defender's ability to find the back of the net, six times already this season, was just one facet of his game.

He said: "I would not want it to be thought that only Glik's best attribute is scoring goals, because Glik's a good defender, he is a complete player."

If Spurs are looking to sign a player at 27, they would certainly be looking for a player who is the finished article.

Glik would be an upgrade on Vlad Chiriches, and his experience would fill a void while Eric Dier continues his development.

Tottenham's defence has been poor this season, while Torino have conceded just 31 goals in 29 games in the top flight in Italy, one of the best records in Serie A.
