QPR and Tottenham are battling for Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue.

Foot Mercato says Spurs have failed with an €11 million offer for Capoue, while a bid of €10 million plus Samba Diakite from QPR has also been refused.

Toulouse are reluctant to part with Capoue after selling former midfield partner Moussa Sissoko to Newcastle United.

But a bid of €15 million would be enough to convince president Olivier Sadran to cash in.
