Arsenal are also said to be interested in this Portuguese international to replace Mathieu Flamini, but apparently this report suggests that Tottenham also need some solidity in their midfield. Having already spent money on quality outfield players like Bentley, Modric and Giovani, it seems that the Spaniard wants to add some steel to their flair-filled side. Ramos is also said to be keen on signing another centre back as he looks to offload Younes Kaboul, and there seems little doubt that the former Sevilla manager is keen on making a White Hart Lane squad in his own mould.

One sticking point in the Veloso deal could come with the price tag, said to be in the region of £22m, which is pretty damn steep! Do Tottenham fans think that Ramos needs more midfield battlers or do they have what they need in that department?
