Tottenham are ready to pounce for Bordeaux right-back Mathieu Chalme.

The Daily Star Sunday says Harry Redknapp will have funds available if Roman Pavlyuchenko leaves White Hart Lane.

Chalme, 29, moved to the reigning Ligue 1 champions in 2007 after five seasons with Lille.

Spurs sent scouts to see Chalme in action for Laurent Blanc's team last weekend.
