Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have both sent scouts to watch Valencia’s Geoffrey Kondogbia in recent weeks.
That’s according to Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, who report that the La Liga club can sign the loanee from Inter Milan on a permanent basis for €25million at the end of the season.
The midfielder struggled in Serie A, but has been impressive in Spain as part of a Valencia side that will have surprised many supporters.
Despite the club’s struggles in recent years, they are experiencing something of a revival and now sit third in the table behind only Barcelona and Sevilla.
If Valencia do not take up their option on him, the two Premier League sides will be waiting in the wings.
The 24-year-old has slipped out of the picture with national side France, yet it’s not out of the question that he’ll earn a recall if he continues to shine.
Both Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino are on the hunt for defensive midfielders. Liverpool need a more reliable option amid Jordan Henderson’s persistent injury problems, while the same can be said of Mousa Dembele at Tottenham.
The Reds’ need is also likely to be heightened if Emre Can does not sign a new contract before the end of the season.
