Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly rejected the chance to sign Seville's Pablo Sarabia.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Seville midfielder Pablo Sarabia and have decided to reject a move for the attacking midfielder, according to the Daily Mirror. 

If Mauricio Pochettino's side did push for a deal for the 27-year-old then he potentially would have been a replacement for the wantaway playmaker Christian Eriksen.

Despite Seville's disappointment in not securing Champions League football for next season, Sarabia produced the goods on a regular basis last term.

Over the course of the campaign, he was a regular in the middle of the park, and out wide, by playing 52 matches in all competitions, scoring 23 goals and supplying his teammates with 17 assists [transfermarkt]

From an attacking perspective, Sarabia would suit a team like Tottenham down to the ground with his ability to find a pass in the final third and be clinical. 

Added with that, the former Real Madrid man has versatility to the game which would once again suit a manager like Mauricio Pochettino down to the ground because Sarabia can play in behind and push out wide if need be. 

There will be a lot of names floating around associated with Tottenham Hotspur this summer, but they may rue the day they potentially turned down the opportunity to sign Sarabia from Spain.
