Juventus are lining up an £8m offer for Tottenham left-back Benoit Assou-ekotto, according to reports in Italy.
The Cameroon international has been identified by the Serie A giants as a key summer target after club scouts returned with rave reviews of the defender.
But it is unlikely Tottenham will want to sell Assou-Ekotto who has been in fine form over his 32 appearances this season.
But Juventus think a bid of around £8m could be enough to persuade Spurs to sell.


Juventus are also said to be interested in Tottenham battler Wilson Palacios and could offer Momo Sissoko as part of any deal to land the White Hart Lane stars. Luigi Delneri is looking to freshen things up at the Turin side and has a number of irons in the fire as he hopes to turn the Turin side into genuine Serie A title contenders

Juventus hope to move back into their new Stadio Delle Alpi base next season and the club’s owners are ready to spend big to bring the Old Lady of Italian football back into the big time after a few lean years.

Harry Redknapp is unlikely to be interested in selling Assou-Ekotto but talk of a Palacios exit could be more realistic as the Honduras international has been a shadow of the player who was in fine form last term and a swap deal that would see former Liverpool man Sissoko move the other way may well appeal to the North London club.

Tottenham did also show interest in veteran Italian international Vincenzo Iaquinta last summer and again in the January transfer window so perhaps he may be used to help persuade the Premier League side to do business.
