Tottenham are making a move for free agent Ciprian Marica. The People says Marica is set to snub Arsenal and West Ham United advances to join Andre Villas-Boas's new-look Tottenham side.

Marica, capped 60 times by Romania, is looking for a £60,000-a-week three-year deal at White Hart Lane.

After blowing the £86m Gareth Bale cash on stars like Brazilian Paulinho and Spain's Roberto Soldado, Villas-Boas can net the 28-year-old for free because Marica had his contract with German outfit Schalke terminated a year early at the end of last season.
