The Lilywhites were one of several clubs interested in bringing him in prior to the 2021/22 campaign.

This was because Spurs bosses feared Harry Kane would be leaving following Manchester City's constant pursuit of the England captain.

And Martinez was identified as a potential replacement by not just Tottenham but also north London rivals Arsenal.

Atletico Madrid were also thought to be interest in the 24-year-old Argentine.

But it was Spurs who ended up tabling a bid for the forward.
