Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly pushing for Serie A star.


Tottenham Hotspur are competing for the signature of Torino midfielder Soualiho Meité, report Gazzetta dello Sport.

Meite, 24, is a central midfielder who has made 17 Serie A starts this season, scoring twice.

The French midfielder began his career with Auxerre, before switching to Lille, Monaco, and the Torino this summer.

His performances in Serie A have sparked interest, with Torino ninth in the league, just three points behind sixth placed Roma.

Meite represented France at under-20 level but has not been capped by the senior side.

Gazzetta dello Sport report Roma are interested in Meite along with Tottenham.

Torino are not keen to sell in January, considering they only bought Meite in the summer.

Tottenham were reportedly ready to present a proposal to Roma to sign Meite, but were warned off that he is not for sale.

Other Premier League sides are claimed to be interested, yet are not named in the report.
