Tottenham have submitted a €25 million (£21.9m) bid for Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Piero Hincapie, according to reports in Germany.

Spurs completed a loan deal for Villarreal winger Arnaut Danjuma earlier this week but are still keen on bolstering ’s squad before the end of the transfer window.

According to , Tottenham have now made a verbal offer to Leverkusen to sign Hincapie this month.

However, the report claims that Leverkusen are likely to demand more than the €25m (£21.9m) which Spurs have proposed.

Leverkusen are in a strong negotiating position as Hincapie still has over three years remaining on his current contract with the Bundesliga club.
