Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is set to fly into Barcelona on Sunday to open talks over the transfer of Samuel Eto'o to White Hart Lane according to a report in the London press.

The Evening Standard suggests that Levy will fly to Barcelona on Sunday to begin talks with the club over a £27million move, as he attempts to steal a march on Inter Milan, who are also interested in signing the twenty-seven year old.

Levy would be required to break the club's wage structure in order to finance the £100,000 a week that Eto'o would request, but seems willing to do so in order to sign one of the most highly-revered strikers in world football.

Tottenham have already completed the signing of Croatian playmaker Luka Modric and if they could add Eto'o to their squad it would be a further signal of intent ahead of a season in which they hope to break into the top four.
