Cambiasso hopes to remain in Europe

Reported Tottenham target Esteban Cambiasso has revealed he is considering offers from top European clubs.

The former Argentina international becomes a free transfer in July after Inter Milan did not offer him a contract extension after 10 years at the San Siro.

Tottenham are keen to reinforce their midfield line and new coach Mauricio Pochettino has set his eyes on fellow Argentinian Cambiasso.

"My career for the time being is still in Europe," Cambiasso said to "I have several proposals from big clubs but as a sign of respect for them I will not reveal the negotiations that my father and my brother are undertaking."

The 33-year-old midfielder has ruled out returning to play in Argentina for the time being.

Cambiasso was strongly linked with a return to River Plate, the club he played for in the 2001-02 season.

"My future is very far from Argentina," Cambiasso said.

Cambiasso, who joined Inter in 2004 from Real Madrid, scored four goals in 32 league appearances for the Nerazzurri outfit in the past season.
