Tottenham have made a bold move for Dinamo Zagreb midfield ace Luka Modric.

El Mundo Deportivo says Chelsea were regarded as favourites for the Croatia international until two days ago when Spurs made an aggressive move for the midfielder.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also remains keen, having attempted to secure Modric during negotiations last summer for ex-Dinamo striker Eduardo da Silva.

Dinamo chiefs have no preference and are ready to sell to the highest bidder in the summer.
