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.
The 21-year-old primarily plays as a centre-back but is also capable of playing on the left side of a defence.
He has already been capped 24 times by Ecuador and impressed during their World Cup campaign in Qatar last month.
Tottenham are also hopeful of completing a deal to sign Sporting CP right-back Pedro Porro.
Reports in Portugal claim that Spurs have agreed a €48m (£41.1m) deal with Sporting, while Porro is now due to travel to London to finalise his move.
