Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on Udinese's Rodrigo De Paul.

Rodrigo De Paul of Udinese Calcio looks on during the Serie A match between Udinese and Parma Calcio at Stadio Friuli on January 19, 2019 in Udine, Italy.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in snapping up Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul – but only at the end of the season.

Fans are keen to see Spurs bring in some new faces this month, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli out injured whilst Son Heung-min is away on international duty.

However, Spurs may already be eyeing potential targets for the summer, with an Argentinian talent believed to be on Mauricio Pochettino's radar.

 

Tuttomercatoweb report that Tottenham are interested in landing Udinese playmaker De Paul, with Inter Milan and Napoli both keen on him too.

It's stated that De Paul has intriguingly changed his agent ahead of pursuing a big move away from Udinese, and Tottenham could be one potential destination.

De Paul, 24, emerged as a starlet with Racing Club before heading to Valencia in 2014, spending two years there before his move to Italy with Udinese.

A three-cap international with Argentina, De Paul has starred in Serie A this season, notching six goals and three assists in 19 games to become one of Italian football's top attacking threats.

Capable of playing on either flank or as an attacking midfielder, De Paul is known more for his technical ability than his pace, and could provide Pochettino with a versatile attacking threat.

Pochettino will no doubt be familiar with his compatriot, and joining the likes of Paulo Gazzaniga, Juan Foyth, Erik Lamela and Pochettino himself may be appealing to De Paul this summer.
