Tottenham Hotspur are ready to firm up their interest in Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara.
Spurs have been tracking the 20-year-old since he was at Bologna two years ago when he first broke onto the scene.
And now, according to Tuttosport, Tottenham are ready to test Napoli’s resolve this summer with a formal offer.
Spurs are in the market for a central midfielder this summer as the future of Mousa Dembele remains uncertain.
The Belgian will have one year left on his contract come the end of the season and he is a target for AC Milan.
In fact, back in March the Belgium midfielder made the stunning revelation that this season could be his last.
The 30-year-old’s departure would leave Tottenham short in the middle of the park and they may swoop for Diawara to fill that hole.
