Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Real Betis sensation Fabian Ruiz.

Marca report Spurs are keen on the Spanish midfielder, but face competition from Serie A side Roma.

It is little wonder both clubs are interested, because Ruiz has a release clause of just £14 million.

In today's crazy transfer market, landing Ruiz for that low fee would be one of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy's best ever bargains.

This field has a high standard, with Eric Dier and Dele Alli bought for less than £10 million combined.

Even for a little more, Ruiz at £14 million is a snip, and it is little wonder Betis are desperately trying to re-negotiate his contract.

Ruiz is regarded as a player who could be even better than his former Betis teammate Dani Ceballos, who signed with Real Madrid last season.

The midfielder has scored twice and provided three assists in 11 La Liga starts this season, recently netting in a spectacular 5-3 win over rivals Sevilla.

Earlier this season he helped lead Betis to an impressive win over Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Ruiz is a player who could double his transfer value after just one season at Spurs, and would be a big upgrade on Moussa Sissoko.

For the same price as Ross Barkley, signing Ruiz would go some way to answering questions why Spurs did not move for the new Chelsea star.
