Tottenham told to break bank for Love

Tottenham must cough up big for CSKA Moscow striker Vagner Love.

Tottenham must cough up big for CSKA Moscow striker Vagner Love.

The Daily Mail says CSKA Moscow have slapped a £26million price tag on Vagner Love following reports that Tottenham Hotspur are keen on the Brazil hot shot.

The 26-year-old has been in fine form for the Russian giants since returning from a year-long loan in South America for family reasons.

Love had hoped to stay on longer in Brazil after stints with Palmeiras and Flamengo, but CSKA are refusing to agree another short-term deal and will only listen to big offers from European clubs.

CSKA president Yevgeny Giner will not stand in the way of player moving to a bigger club, but the price has to be right. Sources in Brazil suggest a deal in January could be done for closer to £15m if Spurs do renew their interest.
