Tottenham to trump dithering Arsenal for Blackburn defender Samba

Tottenham are set to trump dithering Arsenal for Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba.

The Sun says Spurs made a cash-plus-player bid for the Blackburn centre-back worth £10 million.

Arsenal and Everton have also tracked Samba, rated at £12m by Ewood Park chiefs.

Spurs do not want to spend that much but are willing to offer some money while offloading a player such as Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane, David Bentley or Sebastian Bassong.

Samba is understood to be keen on a move to Tottenham or Arsenal but both must match Rovers' valuation.
