Chelsea will make a final bid for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric. The Daily Star says they are set to make a final £30m offer for Modric and will tell Tottenham: Take it or leave it.

Chelsea are refusing to give up their chase for the Croatian play-maker, despite Spurs' insistence Modric is not for sale.

Chelsea have already bid £22m and £27m for the 25-year-old, who has made it clear he wants to leave White Hart Lane.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is believed to be holding out for £35m. New Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is a big fan of Modric and owner Roman Abramovich is also keen, believing he could provide the chances for £50m flop Fernando Torres.
