Andrea Cambiaso’s agent, Giovanni Bia, has admitted that ‘three or four’ Premier League sides showed interest in his client in the summer but revealed that Juventus refused to budge on their asking price for the left-back.

Destiny Udogie has made a promising start to life at Tottenham while the North London club also have reliable cover for the left-back role in the form of Ben Davies, but that has not stopped the Lilywhites from being linked with a move for Cambiaso.

The 23-year-old, who hit the limelight during his loan spell at Bologna last season, has made an impressive start to the season at Juventus.

A couple of days ago, CalcioMercato claimed that Spurs have ‘set their eyes’ on the young full-back, adding that the defender himself has not ruled out the possibility of leaving Turin in January.

Were Spurs one of the clubs to ask about Cambiaso?

Bia has now stated that multiple English clubs tried to sign Cambiaso in the summer but none were willing to meet Juve’s valuation, which stands at €25m-€30m (£21.7m-£26m).

The left-back’s agent told Tutto Juve: “His (Cambiaso) wish came true. That is, to play with Juventus and to have scored a decisive goal.”

“What satisfied him most was not so much the personal glory, but rather the awareness of having brought home the three points. He was absolutely delighted.

“He dreams of winning the Scudetto. Three or four Premier League teams were very interested (in the summer). We weren’t surprised by the fact that Juve considered him un-sellable. They would have sold only against an offer of 25 or 30 million euros.

“He has a long contract, and will still have to work to prove himself. He just thinks about playing and doing well with this shirt, then things (such as a new deal) will come by themselves.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Given how well Cambiaso is now playing, it will likely take a bid of over £35m to price the youngster away from the Allianz Stadium. I do not see Tottenham paying that amount, given that we are well-stocked with options in both full-back areas.
