Report: Tottenham Hotspur moving in on Colombian Bosman signing Bernardo Espinosa

El Molinón, Sporting Gijón 02

The Sporting Gijon defender is currently out with a serious knee injury.

Tottenham Hotspur are beginning to plan their summer transfer business after a positive season from the team.

Despite their good season it looks like they are set to finish the season without any silverware and Spurs need to bring in some new players to ensure they continue their progression.

There have been some reports of Spurs having agreed a deal for Fenerbahce midfielder Mehmet Topal on a free transfer and now another Bosman looks like being on his way to Spurs.

Reports in Colombia are suggesting that Spurs are closing in on a deal to sign Bernardo Espinosa.

The Sporting Gijon player is out of contract in the summer and has been impressive at the Spanish club. Publi Metro in Colombia is reporting that Spurs will be making a move for the defender to strengthen the club’s depth in defence.

The 26-year-old centre-back has not yet featured for the Colombian national team and has spent the majority of his career playing in Spain.

He has played 17 times this season but has not featured since January after suffering a serious knee injury – so his signature would be something of a surprise.

So keep an eye out on this deal, as Tottenham look to strengthen their squad for the 2016-17 season.
