Tottenham & Liverpool Pursue £10m Championship Attacker

Spurs and Reds in competition to sign Under-21 midfielder.

Spurs are likely to make a £10 million offer to sign Blackpool star Tom Ince in the upcoming transfer window, reports the Sun.

The 20-year midfielder is now being watched at all of his games, with Tottenham coaches Les Ferdinand and Tim Sherwood keeping a constant eye on the player’s progress.

Spurs’ interest is justifiable given that left winger Gareth Bale is being tracked by all of Europe’s best clubs. Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas considers the son of former England star Paul Ince to be the best alternative to the Welsh wing wizard.

However, the competition to sign the Tangerines youngster seems high, with Liverpool ready to make a move after Arsenal revealed their reluctance to sell Theo Walcott on January. Ince is now top of Brendan Rodgers’ shopping list, along with Chelsea’s Daniel Sturride and Villarreal’s Giuseppe Rossi.

The Reds’ are likely to make a £6 million offer for the Under-21 International, reports The Daily Mail, which would fall someway short of the bid from North London.
