The Colombian midfielder is said to be a transfer target for clubs across Europe ahead of the re-opening of the transfer window.

Spurs are reported to have been following the 26-year-old for some time, and could be set to make their move this summer.

Inter would be reluctant to part with a man who has become a regular in their side since completing a permanent switch from Porto in 2012, but concede that interest in his services is building.

Moratti said: "Guarin? He is a really good player and for that reason he is liked by others.

"Tottenham are really interested."

While Spurs are among those plotting a summer raid, ambitious Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala have moved to distance themselves from reports suggesting they are planning an approach.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Regarding the rumours on Fredy Guarin, we deny holding an interest in the player.

"These assumptions are without substance, as they also are about (Roberto) Soldado and (Pierre-Emerick) Aubameyang.

"The Anzhi name is used to fuel talks and increase a player's value. There aren't any negotiations under way."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
