Tottenham planning bid for Valencia defender Mathieu

Tottenham are chasing Valencia defender Jeremy Mathieu.

The Daily Star says sources close to Mathieu insist he is top of the north London club's summer wish list.

The 30-year-old France international is a centre-half who can also play at left back and Spurs have had him watched in La Liga several times this season.

Mathieu is under contract until 2017 and his buy-out clause is believed to be around £17m, although Spurs chairman Daniel Levy feels a deal can be done for less than that.
