Tottenham Hotspur set sights on Hector Moreno

Published Add your comment

Mauricio Pochettino is looking to make Hector Moreno his first Tottenham Hotspur signing, according to the Daily Express, having managed the central defender in his time at Espanyol.

It was the Argentine manager who brought Moreno to Espanyol from AZ Alkmaar in 2011 and could be set to join up with the Mexican international once again.

Pochettino connection

Pochettino was announced as the new Tottenham manager in May 2014, replacing interim boss Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane, and is keen to bolster his squad in search of European football.

The Mexican’s agent, Eduardo Hernandez, has revealed that his client is looking for a move away from the club, but is keen to stay in Europe.

He said: “Moreno is leaving Espanyol. He wants to leave and we’re looking for another team in Europe.”

Manchester United interest

Pochettino’s relationship with the player could add to his chances of landing Moreno, although the player may have to decide between two of his former managers as Manchester United’s new boss, Louis van Gaal, also managed the player while at AZ Alkmaar.

Similar reports have emerged suggesting that it's the Red Devils who have the edge due to Van Gaal’s connection to the player. Inter Milan are also reportedly interested, as well as a host of Bundesliga club.
