Tottenham boss Spurs boss Antonio Conte has made a new left-sided centre-back one of his main priorities and is among the many admirers of Ecuador international Hincapie.

The 21-year-old caught the eye at the World Cup in Qatar and is on the radar of a number of clubs following impressive performances for Leverkusen since his arrival in Germany in 2021.

The Bundesliga side, managed by former Liverpool star Xabi Alonso, failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League and would consider selling.

Spurs could be persuaded to buy Hincapie this month but then loan him back to Leverkusen for the remainder of the season.

But the price for the Spanish defender remains a sticking point.

Sporting want a lot more than the initial £27m Spurs are prepared to pay.
