Tottenham are keen to enter the battle for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Mirror says the north Londoners are keen to enter the bidding for Lukaku, whose future remains in doubt with the Blues poised to snap up £32million hitman Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.

That move could be part-funded by the sale of £26million forward Roberto Soldado, who is known to want a return to Spain after just one season in England.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is also ready to sell Emmanuel Adebayor to boost funds for Belgium Lukaku.
