Long-term Tottenham Hotpsur transfer target Mateo Musacchio could be available this summer for £13 million, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was first reported to be interested in signing the defender by Spanish newspaper AS when he took charge of the London side in 2014, but a deal was never completed.

The 26-year-old allegedly has a buyout clause of €50 million (£48.8 million), but with his current deal running out in 2018 the club may be forced to accept offers much lower than that to stop him leaving for free next summer.

With Kevin Wimmer not getting much playing time since joining in 2015, Tottenham may well be in the market for a new central defender this summer and Musacchio is the type of player they would be interested in bringing in.

The centre-back would fit in well at White Hart Lane, especially with Pochettino favouring a back three for a lot of this season.

The Argentine has been at Villarreal since 2009, so if the North Londoners do decide to reignite their interest in the player he could well take the chance to move to a different country for a new challenge.
