The Mirror says new Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is assessing whether the 23-year-old, who's also been linked with Aston Villa and newly-promoted Southampton, is part of his plans before accepting or rejecting the offer.
Royals manager Brian McDermott said: "We've made an offer for another player. That has been ongoing for a number of weeks.
"He is in England and we've targeted him for a number of weeks. We're hopeful we can get it done."
