Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is ready to meet the buyout clause of Atletico Madrid striker Adrian.

The Daily Star Sunday says Adrian, 24, helped Atletico win the Europa Cup last season. Bidding must start at the £15m escape clause he has in his contract.

Spurs' rivals Arsenal have also had their eyes on him.

And former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola also wanted the striker last season but now he's left the Nou Camp, the club's interest has dipped.
