Villarreal have confirmed that Tottenham have enquired about their goalkeeper Diego Lopez.
The Spaniard has impressed hugely at El Madrigal since his summer switch from Real Madrid and a number of clubs are reportedly monitoring his progress.
However, Villarreal have managed to persuade Lopez to sign a new long-term deal that ties him to the club until 2014. Moreover, his release clause has increased to €35m.
Villarreal president Fernando Roig confirmed on Sunday that a host of clubs including Milan and Tottenham – who are also tracking Espanyol’s Carlos Kameni – had asked about the keeper.
“He is a big keeper and we want him to be with this club for a long time,” Roig told Canal 9.
“It’s true that clubs like Milan and Tottenham have asked about the chances of getting him but we have no desire to sell.”
