White Hart Lane club keen to make the most of the player’s stalled contract talks.
Tottenham are hoping to make the most of the stalling in contract talks between Leon Osman and his club Everton according to The Metro.
Reports in recent days had suggested that negotiations had broken down regarding a new deal for the England star.
The 31 year old midfielder has two years remaining on his current deal and Everton were thought to be keen to persuade Osman to commit his future to the club.
But talks have now been put on hold which has alerted the interest of Tottenham.
The White Hart Lane said are ready to make enquiries about Osman over the summer to establish whether a transfer might be possible.
Spurs boss Andre Vilas-Boas is known to be in the market for a midfielder after missing out on Porto’s Joao Moutinho last year and is ready to make Osman one of his top summer targets.
Osman has been in fine form for Everton this season and that has been recognised with his first two international caps.
Osman knows he is running out of time before he will have to hang up his boots and Spurs are hoping to tempt Osman with the prospect of Champions League football.
Spurs are reportedly ready to bid £6 million for the player.
