However, the Cameroon international revealed that he hasn't seen the 24-year-old in action despite his impressive performances for Brazil at the Confederations Cup.
Assou-Ekotto told Goal.com: "No. I don't follow this kind of news. I don't know what he looks like."
The 29-year-old has been linked with an exit from White Hart Lane this summer despite making 22 appearances last year for Tottenham.
