New Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas appears to have wasted little time in raiding his former club, with reports suggesting the Portuguese is readying a bid for Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge.
Villas-Boas was appointed as Spurs boss on Tuesday afternoon, signing a three-year contract after being sacked as Chelsea coach only four months previous.
The Portuguese now seemingly hopes to make the most of the uncertainly surrounding Sturridge's future at Chelsea by making an offer for the 22-year-old England international.
According to the Daily Mail, Villas-Boas is planning to bid £10 million for Sturridge as he immediately seeks to reinforce the squad he inherited from Harry Redknapp.
Sturridge, meanwhile, is reportedly set to have talks with Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo in the next few weeks, having become somewhat of a peripheral figure towards the end of last season.
The arrivals of Eden Hazard and Marko Marin are likely to further limit the opportunities of the former Manchester City forward, while the resurgence of Fernando Torres may also see chances at a premium.
