His excellent season with Alaves has not gone unnoticed and he is still wanted by several clubs even though he recently put pen to paper and signed a three-year extension with the UEFA Cup runners-up.
Sources in Spain claim that Spurs and PSG are both closing in on the former Barcelona and Manchester United ace.
PSG coach Luis Fernandez has a huge shopping list and is being linked to a plethora of players throughout Europe.
Meanwhile a move to London would be very welcome for Cruyff, who was close to agreeing a switch to West Ham last summer.
A few months back, it was also reported that Glenn Hoddle was trying to bring Cruyff to his former club Southampton.
Now Hoddle has returned to Tottenham, the interest in Cruyff has yet again resurfaced.
Meanwhile Espanyol coach Paco Flores has also revealed that he would like to have Cruyff in his team next season. The midfielder may favour a move back to Catalunya, but Flores has admitted that Espanyol may not be able to afford the deal.
