Tottenham have already made an approach to sign Benjamin Pavard, but Stuttgart are not cooperating by any means, based on reports.
The young defender was in action for France last Saturday as he scored a brilliant equaliser which helped Les Blues secure a dramatic 4-3 victory over Argentina in the round of 16 tie.
Incidentally, Tottenham had already made an approach to sign the 22-year-old who is now likely to be on the radar of several clubs after that show.
But Stuttgart have reportedly turned down Spurs’ move, insisting that Pavard – who has a €35million buy-out clause – is currently not available for sale.
The Frenchman is a versatile defender who is capable of playing in the middle of the back-line or at full-back where he is shining for France in Russia.
After Kyle Walker’s decision to join Manchester City last summer, Mauricio Pochettino moved to sign Serge Aurier, but the Ivorian is yet to cement a regular spot in the first team.
