Tottenham are determined to hold onto strike-pair Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov.
But Spurs are understood to have greeted the news on Keane with little concern, confident the player will remain at the club having signed a new five-year contract last May.
Keeping hold of Berbatov will prove more difficult with the Bulgarian international's agent insistence that the 27-year-old wants to play Champions League football.
Following Jermain Defoe's departure to Portsmouth last season, Spurs would face a serious shortage in their strike department should the pair opt to leave, with Sunderland target Darren Bent as their only recognised striker. However the north London outfit remain convinced the duo will stay for next season.
