Spurs want Roma pair Erik Lamela and Miralem Pjanic.
Tottenham will use the money from Gareth Bale’s world record transfer to Real Madrid to fund a £50m double swoop for Roma duo Erk Lamela and Miralem Pjanic, according to Italian broadcaster Sportmediaset.
Spurs new director of football Franco Baldini signed the midfield pair for the Giallorossi and is keen to bring both to White Hart Lane this summer.
Bale looks set to join Real in a deal worth between £85m and £105m this month and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is ready to hand boss Andre Villas-Boas and Baldini a significant chunk of the funds to improve the first team squad.
The North London outfit are reportedly keen on Liverpool’s Luis Suarez but are aware that there are several obstacles to signing the Uruguayan.
If a move for Suarez fails, Baldini will pull out all the stops to sign Lamela and Pjanic, although Roma are reluctant to sell the duo, particularly Argentine winger Lamela.
The 21-year-old scored 15 Serie A goals in 33 appearances last term and the right winger is valued at close to £30m.
Playmaker Pjanic, meanwhile, was reportedly targeted by Villas-Boas earlier in the summer, before Baldini’s arrival at Spurs, and has also been linked with Barcelona.
