Ateltico Madrid midfielder Petrov welcomes Tottenham interest

Petrov said: “Tottenham are showing interest in me and I do not hide this.

“I can tell you that they are not the only club which has shown interest but as I say this is only interest and observations.

“There are no concrete talks or offers. I am very happy with this as every good player is pleased when he attracts interest from such big and strong clubs.

“There have been speculations linking me with Tottenham since last year. I am still playing in the number 17 shirt for Atletico and nobody has called me with a transfer offer.

“The day before yesterday I had a meeting with my agent and he did not mention anything. If there was something he would have told me.

“For the moment I do not think about any transfers. I have four extremely important games until the end of the season two with Bulgaria and two with Atletico. I will think after this if there is anything concrete.”
