Tottenham Hotspur have been one of the quietest clubs in January windows since Mauricio Pochettino became manager in 2014.
The Argentine tends to leave his spending until the summer, but reports have emerged claiming that he is eyeing a swoop for Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara.
According to Calcio Napoli 24, the North London outfit are planning to table a bid of around £33m for the 20-year-old.
The Guinean player moved to Napoli from Bologna in 2016, and this season has started eight games in all competitions and has come off the bench in a further nine.
The uncertainty over the positions of Mousa Dembele and Moussa Sissoko in the team has led to suggestions that Pochettino wants to strengthen his midfield.
Once the rumours about Diawara emerged, Spurs fans expressed their thoughts on the possible deal via Twitter.
We don’t target anyone lol. No point believing any of this

Tight Dictator is not signing anyone so Poch better get off his ass & promote 1 or 2 of our best youth players.
We can't afford to play trash like Sissoko anymore 😭

These rumours are getting boring now. Let’s face it no one coming in. Unless they improve the squad waste of money. #COYS
