Tottenham will have to dig deep to sign Malaga star Santi Cazorla.

The Daily Mail says Harry Redknapp was a big fan and he has been linked with Spurs as a replacement for Luka Modric. While he is not like for like you could see the reasoning behind such a move. However, Tottenham are continuing to explore other avenues.

Malaga, despite their financial troubles, would also not sell Cazorla lightly.

His buy-out clause is around £38m and he is not the personality to agitate for a move even though it is roundly believed he is one of the players who has yet to be paid his full salary.
