The centre back’s impressive form in Serie A saw him crowned ‘Defender of the Season’
The 23-year-old was part of the Argentina side who won the Copa America this summer
The centre back scored three goals and made five assists in 42 appearances last term and his impressive performances saw him crowned Serie A’s ‘Defender of the Season’.
He was also part of the Argentina squad that won the Copa America earlier this month, with Lionel Scaloni’s side keeping a clean sheet in each of the three games he played.
Signing a defender is a priority for Spurs and new boss Nuno Espirito Santo this summer.
The club had a £13m bid turned down for Bologna centre back Takehiro Tomiyasu earlier this month.
