Argentine international Daniel Diaz has claimed Tottenham are interested in signing him.
The 29-year-old, known as Cata, only moved to Europe last year when Getafe snapped him up from Boca Juniors.
Since arriving in Spain Diaz has impressed with a number of commanding displays at the heart of Getafe's defence.
Juande Ramos was made aware of him earlier in the season by his Spanish contacts although he was not in charge of Spurs when Cata featured against them in their Uefa Cup win at White Hart Lane.
A host of clubs are now tracking him and he has confirmed that Spurs are one of them.
"I am comfortable at Getafe, but you always want to improve as a player so I hope I will be given the chance," he told the Daily Mirror.
"I know that Tottenham have asked for me and there are other foreign clubs interested but this depends on many things, so I will not get carried away."
