Report: Tottenham target Kamil Glik to be offered new Torino contract

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham have long been linked with making a move for Kamil Glik.

Spurs are still in the market for defensive reinforcements as Mauricio Pochettino looks to rebuild his squad ahead of the 2015/16 season, but a report in Tuttosport has indicated that one target may now be out of reach.

27-year-old Torino captain Kamil Glik has been on the list of Spurs targets since the start of the summer, according to TMW, but the Tuttosport report suggests that Torino boss Giampiero Ventura is keen on extending his contract in Serie A for at least another year.

Glik, a Polish international centre-back, moved to Torino in 2012, and his 136 appearances have established him as one of the best defenders in the league. The interest in him comes as no surprise, and Ventura is keen to see the Torino board increase his wage to keep ahold of him for at least another season..

He wants the club president to go all out to in an attempt to offer Glik a new deal, to ward off interest from the Premier League, with Spurs circling the player ahead of offering him a move to England.

Ventura is well aware of the importance of Glik to his team, and as Torino are preparing to offer him a new contract with far better terms to keep him in Italy, Spurs may have to start looking elsewhere for defensive reinforcements.
