River Plate midfielder Leonardo Ponzio admits that he would consider offers from abroad.

River Plate midfielder Leonardo Ponzio has claimed that he is aware of reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 30-year-old rejoined River from Real Zaragoza earlier this year and has impressed for the Argentine club this season.

It is understood that a host of European clubs have watched the playmaker in recent weeks, with Spurs said to be preparing a January move.

"I knew that some people came to watch me in the match against Boca and I think in another game too," Ponzio told reporters.

"Nobody spoke with me about a possible transfer or real interest. Anyway, regarding my future, I am very comfortable where I am and I feel respect. I would like to take advantage of this moment.

"It's not a year yet since I came back from Spain. Therefore, if an offer arrives, River and me will have to analyse it. I am at a good personal moment and I have to keep on going on in that way. I would like to have the chance to play for the national team again, so I have to keep on doing well at River."

Ponzio has made seven international appearances for Argentina.
