fans should besiege Daniel Levy over the club’s reported decision to snub the chance to sign Sevilla midfielder .

According to the Daily Star, Sevilla had offered Sarabia, 27, to the North London club, but Tottenham rejected the Spaniard because they are not interested in signing him this summer.

It is really hard to tell why Spurs would not be interested in the former Real Madrid midfielder because he was in incredible form last season for Sevilla and with Mauricio Pochettino in need of reinforcements in his midfield, he would have been a quality signing.

Across all competitions last season, Sarabia scored 23 goals and supplied 17 assists in 52 appearances for Sevilla.

He scored on three separate occasions against Barcelona and also found the net against Lazio, Valencia and Atletico Madrid, so he is clearly someone who can step up his game against the better teams.

According to stats by WhoScored, Sarabia averaged 2.1 key passes per appearance in La Liga and also managed a 79.6 per cent pass completion rate, which is impressive for an attacking midfielder who plays a lot of high-risk balls.

It is clear that Spurs could do with an attacking midfielder like Sarabia, who would offer the perfect back-up to someone like Dele Alli or even replace Christian Eriksen in the starting line-up, should the Dane move on this summer.

However what is most odd about Levy’s snub of Sarabia is that according to a report by Spanish news outlet Sport, Sarabia has a release clause of just £16million.

That sort of money won’t even get Tottenham a top-class Championship player, so when someone is up for grabs for that much and is proven at a decent club in a major European league, they simply have to go in for him.

Sarabia is only 27-years-old as well, so Spurs could get at least three good seasons out of him, which is more than enough to justify spending £16million.

It really is odd why Tottenham have rejected Sarabia and fans should be demanding that Levy reconsiders his stance on Sevilla’s midfield goal machine.
