Spurs set to bring utility man to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham are eyeing up a bid for Feyenoord’s utility defender Bruno Martins Indi according to The Daily Mail.
The 21-year old has been watched repeatedly by Tottenham scouts in recent weeks and have provided glowing reports to the club’s management.
The pugnacious defender can play at either left back or in the middle of the defence. Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to bring in reinforcements as it looks more and more likely that his side will be playing Champions League football next season.
Tottenham currently sit in a lofty third position and are seven points clear of neighbours and bitter rivals Arsenal who lie in fifth.
The Portuguese gaffer has identified left-back as an area for improvement. While first choice left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto remains highly rated at White Hart Lane, he suffered a spell of injury earlier in the season that forced the club to play right-back Kyle Naughton in the left-back slot.
They are keen to ensure a natural left-back is able to fill in should Assou-Ekotto succumb to injury again in the future.
It is rumoured a fee in the region of £5.5 million would be enough to persuade Feyenoord to part with the player’s services and Tottenham are reportedly happy to match that valuation.
