Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to raise their bid for Ipswich striker Connor Wickham after having two bids rejected in the summer.

The first for the 17 year-old was £5m, with an offer to loan the player back for the season, while the second was raised to £8m.

Ipswich held out for £10m – which was only matched by Liverpool – but Wickham reportedly was not keen on a move to Anfield, despite naming Fernando Torres as his idol in the past.

Having been priced out of a bid for another 17 year-old with similar physique, Romelu Lukaku, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp clearly feels Connor Wickham is the next best bet, and with Robbie Keane free to leave White Hart Lane, there will be a place for the young Englishman in the Tottenham squad.
