Tottenham are seeking to do as many as 10 deals in and out of the club before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month, according to The Telegraph.
Spurs are closing in on the signing of Lassana Diarra from Real Madrid and Emmanuel Adebayor is expected to join from Manchester City, but whether that is a loan or permanent deal remains unseen.
There have been slight hold-up in both deals as Tottenham look to accommodate the player’s into their strict wage structure.
Adebayor is reportedly on £170,000 per week while Diarra is on £85,000 per week after tax in Spain. One way of resolving the dispute is by paying the players a fee up front or even paying the clubs an added fee that can be used to subsidise their salary.
Meanwhile, some sources claimed Chelsea bid £30 million for Luka Modric last weekend, but Spurs insist they have received no offer and would reject it in any case.
The player is understood to be growing increasingly frustrated by chairman Daniel Levy’s stubbornness, but remains committed to playing for Spurs and should start against Manchester United tomorrow.
Harry Redknapp’s stance has softened somewhat and has made it clear he is open to a deal at the right price, but Levy is holding his line.
With 27 players over 21 in their squad and only 25 eligible under Premier League rules, the pressure is on to sell players.
Stoke still hope they might be able to do a deal for Wilson Palacios and would also go for Peter Crouch or Jermaine Jenas at the right price.
Spurs want to sell Alan Hutton, Sebastien Bassong and David Bentley but need to reduce their asking price if they are to generate interest.
Niko Kranjcar, a target for Sunderland, is another who could go, even with the current problems with injury in midfield.
