Hector Moreno open to Tottenham switch

Published Add your comment

Mexico and Espanyol centre-back Hector Moreno revealed he is open to a move to Tottenham after praising current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Pochettino managed Moreno when in charge at Espanyol and Moreno has not forgotten his former coach.

"I really appreciate him, it was him who pushed for me [when I joined Espanyol in 2011]," Moreno told Catalan TV station TV3.

The cultural centre back has yet to feature this season after suffering a broken leg in the World Cup but was linked with moves to Lazio and Stuttgart in the summer, as well as a reunion with Pochettino at Spurs, and most recently a move to Old Trafford.

Current Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal worked with Moreno at AZ Alkmaar.

Perfect signing

Tottenham have issues at centre-back, with captain Younes Kaboul struggling to find the form from before his own injury problems, while Jan Vertonghen seems to be in favour one week and out the next.

Summer signing Federico Fazio has picked up two red cards in five appearances, while Vlad Chiriches has hardly featured, and when he has he has looked far from secure.

Open to a move

Moreno is open to a transfer.

He said: "It has been said many times that the club are looking to sell me - it's not what I have said, it's what the president and the people on the board have said. It would be beneficial for Espanyol that I recover and be [available] in the market."
