The Paraguayan has been told by his former club they will not be signing him, as Spurs loom.
Antonio Sanabria at Barcelona
The player in question is Paraguayan striker Antonio Sanabria – who has been heavily linked with Spurs in the media recently.

The report suggests Barca’s technical secretary Robert Fernandez told him to accept an interesting offer if it came up, as Barcelona would not be able to offer him regular football.
Sanabria spent four years on the books at Barca before joining Roma in 2014, via a short stint at Sassuolo. He spent last season on loan at Sporting Gijon – scoring 11 goals in 31 games.
The report also suggests that Roma could want as much as €20 million (£16.6 million) for the player.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino
Sanabria is said to be keen on a move to Spurs, as he is a fan of manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Tottenham are looking to increase their striking options ahead of next season, after finding themselves short of options at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
