Tottenham Hotspur have been linked over the weekend to Bologna full-back Adam Masina.

Masina is reported by The Mirror to be lined up as a replacement for Danny Rose, to compete with left-back Ben Davies.

The Moroccan born talent is a bright prospect and is only 23-yeas-old.

But as his manager has been keen to point out, he has a lot to learn.

Bologna boss and former Italian international Roberto Donadoni both praised and admonished Masina at a press conference last month, questioning his motivation.

He told Bologna News: "He must be aware that he is a player who has great potential not only in technique but also in terms of physical superiority.

"He has it and this makes me angry: He has to tackle all the challenges that go beyond his performance. Determination and desire to sweat are at the base of tactical and technical challenges.

"If he gets back the conviction lost in recent times, he will, it's hard to take him out of the team."

Masina has only 18 months left remaining on his contract, but has remained a regular in Bologna's starting XI.

He has previously been linked to other Premier League clubs and so Spurs will likely not be the only ones monitoring his situation.

If he did move to North London then Masina would have to work hard to impress boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is renowned for high fitness demands of his players.
