Chiriches agent confident after Tottenham make £6.9m bid

Steaua Bucharest defender Vlad Chiriches is set to make a £6.9million move to Tottenham according to his agent.

The 23-year old Romanian centre-back has also been a target for Italian club AS Roma but his representative Ioan Becali says the shift to White Hart Lane is a strong possibility.

"I don't know if there's a deal with Tottenham but they sent an offer of £6.9m for Chiriches, which is what Steaua wanted," he said.

"Steaua have to decide whether they agree or not. Steaua had offers of £6m and £6.5m but did not accept and said they only want £6.9m. Now the offer is on the table.

"I talked to the people at Roma; we were told that they cannot offer more than £5.5m or £6m, so we were allowed to talk to the people at Tottenham.

"Additionally, Tottenham are a good friend of mine. [Andre] Villas-Boas was in Bucharest a few years ago as my guest for a few days.

"Chiriches will not have trouble adjusting. He has been very well studied by Villas-Boas and his men told me that English football suits him better."
