Transfer news: Inter Milan confirm Tottenham interest in Fredy Guarin

16 June 2013 04:30
Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has confirmed that Tottenham Hotspur are among those interested in Fredy Guarin. 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."
