Levy - Looking in the Bargain Basement

Andre Villas-Boas is rumoured to favour a move for Joao Moutinho but the Porto midfielder's 20m valuation could prove to be a stumbling block in any negotiations.

Daniel Levy reportedly sees Diame of West Ham as a cheaper alternative and may decide to bid 3.5m to meet the 25-year-old's release clause instead but The Scum are after him too. Schalke 04's director of sport Horst Heldt insists his club will not allow Lewis Holtby to leave for a pittance this winter as Tottenham continue to push for an immediate transfer of the Germany under-21 captain. The increase in price might have something to do with Schalke's plans to push to sign Michael Bastos from Lyon and the fact that Schalke know that Spurs need a replacement for Sandro now rather than later.

Holtby has already agreed a move to Spurs in the summer, when he becomes a free agent, but Spurs are keen on completing a transfer this month. The price for Holtby is now quoted as 2m Euros plus which, given the midfielder is out of contract in 4 months, seem's a very high rent to pay for 4 months. The Scum have also offered 10m for Montpellier midfielder Younes Belhanda, 22, and apparently Spurs also shown interest but have yet to bid. Rennes have confirmed that Yann M'Vila has gone to the Russian side Rubin Kazan for 9.6 m even though it is reported that he would have signed for either QPR, The Scum or us and is seen as yet another missed opportunity for Spurs.

Willian has brassed off his club Shakhtar Donetsk after failing to return from Brazil in time for the start of their winter training camp. Chelski and Spurs have made offers for Willian in the past and he remains a top target for AVB and Chelski came close last season to getting him when AVB was in charge, so any chance we have of beating Chelski to his signature are pretty remote. It is a safe bet then that Daniel Levy will not be spending anything over 5m this January window If we set our expectations to that fact we won't be disappointed.

So if we see any more speculation in the news with any more names linked to Spurs we can confidently disregard them if the price starts with anything over 5m+ because Levy is not about to Bankrupt the club this January over a Willian or a Moutinho or any other player whose name has a designer label inside his shirt.
