Tottenham to miss out on Guarin

Inter’s Colombian midfielder Fredy Guarin, who has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, hopes to remain at the San Siro, according to

Andre Villas-Boas’ side have already had a bid of around £15.3m rejected by Inter, who may want to cash in on 26-year-old Guarin, who still has three more years left on his contract.

However, according to the player’s agent, he does not currently have any plans to leave. Marcelo Ferreyra told “He wants to stay at Inter, He’s happy and he wants to become a champion in their colours.’ Ferreyra goes on to suggest that Manchester United and rich Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala may also be interested.

Guarin joined Inter a year ago from FC Porto after an initial loan spell towards the end of the 2011-12 season. He was a regular last season, appearing 47 times in all competitions and scoring 10 goals, as Inter finished a disappointing ninth in Serie A.

Spurs are already appearing close to signing Brazil’s Paulinho, and Villas-Boas appears to want Guarin to strengthen the central midfield further and provide more competition for places which were mainly filled by Mousa Dembele, Scott Parker and Sandro last season.
