Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas faces competition from Barcelona for Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho.

AVB sees his former Porto star as the ideal replacement for want-away midfield playmaker Luka Modric.

Sport says Barca are also keen and prepared to offer £14 million for the midfielder.

AVB won't move for Moutinho until Spurs have settled on terms with Real Madrid over the sale of Modric.
