The 23-year-old, who has a clause in his contract allowing him to move to a foreign club if someone offers €21 million before August 1, has already been strongly linked with Arsenal.

But Redknapp hopes Spurs can steal a march on the Gunners as he looks to improve his squad ahead of the new season.

"The chairman has been dealing with it," said Redknapp after Spurs' pre-season friendly win at Brighton on Saturday.

"He is a player we like, obviously, so do Arsenal, so do a few other clubs, but where it's all at I don't know.

"He's a player I went and saw when England played Spain Under 21s and I thought he looked fantastic.

"Whether anything happens I wouldn't be sure, the chairman is the only person who has been dealing with those transfers."
