River Plate star Carlos Andres Sanchez has revealed he is aware of interest from Tottenham, with the winger admitting he's flattered and would feel privileged to play for the north London side.

Rumours have speculated that despite comments from Andre Villas-Boas insisting otherwise, Spurs will enter the transfer market in January to bolster their attacking options.

Tottenham have been inconsistent in their performances so far this season, and though they looked to be on a winning run, their loss to Everton at the weekend has put the side back on thin ice as they compete to hold onto their top four place.

And Sanchez, who has starred for Argentine side River Plate since making the move to the club in the 2011 summer, says he has been hearing a lot about the speculation of a move to White Hart Lane.

Andre Villas-Boas
Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly targeting Carlos Andres Sanchez for a January move, and the winger is flattered to be connected with Tottenham.

"I heard the rumour about Tottenham," Sky Sports reported Sanchez saying.

"Immediately everyone started to send me messages and phoned me asking if it was true.

"I am very happy that a team like that is interested in me, we'll see in the future what happens."

While the 28 year old admitted that he had always dreamt of playing for another Premier League side, he insisted that joining Tottenham would be more than acceptable as he considers his next move.

"I once said that I had the dream of playing at Manchester United, but I am happy about the interest of Tottenham," he explained.
