Premier League club Tottenham have reportedly approached PSG star Angel Di Maria over possible switch as soon as his contract lapses at the end of the season.

The Argentine winger has been instrumental for the Parisians under new boss Mauricio Pochettino since the tactician arrived.

However, his contract expires this summer and there are speculations over his future, though Poch would like to keep his countryman in France.

But reports from French outlet L’Equipe are claiming that Spurs are already making background moves for the 32-year-old for him to return to the Premier League.

Di Maria has turned out for PSG since 2015 and his ill-fated stint at Manchester United.

After signing to much fanfare from Real Madrid, he made a great start to life at Old Trafford, scoring three times in his first five Premier League games under Louis van Gaal.

Also, Sokratis Papastathopoulos has emerged as a surprise target for Liverpool following their defensive problems of late.

The Reds have been hindered with injury problems to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip who are all defenders.

This has forced Fabinho and Jordan Henderson to play in their unnatural positions at the back and has cost the Anfield giants a couple of matches this season.
