Spurs must pay big for Middlesbrough winger Johnson

Tottenham must up their bid if they want to prise Adam Johnson away from Middlesbrough.

The Daily Mail says it was claimed they were ready to offer £4million for the Boro 20-year-old but Riverside Stadium bosses are digging their heels in as they view Johnson as a player of the future.

Their stance may change, however, if Tottenham increase their bid as cash is needed to strengthen Gareth Southgate's squad.
