Tottenham boss AVB plans stunning £50M signing spree this week

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is planning a £50 million spending spree in the final days of the summer market.

The Sunday Mirror says chairman Daniel Levy has made enquiries about more than 10 players with boss Andre Villas-Boas desperate to sign at least three new faces before the transfer window slams shut at 11pm on Friday.

Villas-Boas wants to sign two midfielders and a keeper.

He will also need another striker if Spurs can find a buyer for Jermain Defoe.

Tottenham are in talks with Shakhtar Donetsk over ­midfielder Willian and are primed to make another bid for Fulham star Moussa Dembele if Porto refuse to drop their £25m asking price for Portugal ­international Joao Moutinho.

Chelsea's Raul Meireles, Rennes' Yann M'Vila and ­Malaga's Isco are back-up options who have been ­watched and enquired about.

Goalkeepers Hugo Lloris of Lyon and Roma's Maarten Stekelenburg are on the AVB hit-list. France international Lloris is the prime target and Spurs are willing to pay around £11m for him - £9m short of Lyon's valuation.
