Tottenham have already started planning for next season and are ready to snap up Blackpool winger Tom Ince ahead of rivals Liverpool, according to the Mirror.

The paper reports Spurs are keen on wrapping up a deal for Ince as soon as possible and are optimistic of agreeing a fee with Blackpool soon.

Liverpool came close to landing Ince - son of Manchester United legend Paul, who is now Blackpool manager - in the summer, but the move broke down over his vaue before the window slammed shut in January.

Ince has been in superb form this season despite his side's struggles, and has scored 18 league goals while also earning himself a spot in the Championship Team of the Year on Sunday.

While it is unclear whether Liverpool will attempt to make another move for Ince - a former Anfield youngster - in the summer window, the Mirror claim Spurs are ready to make a tempting offer that Blackpool will be unable to refuse in order to get the deal done swiftly.

Should Ince arrive at White Hart Lane he is unlikely to dislodge Aaron Lennon from his right-wing berth, however the north London club have lacked width when the England international has missed games through injury and appear to be trying to amend that problem.

Spurs currently sit in 5th place in the Premier League as they bid for Champions League qualification this season, something which the size of their summer budget reportedly hinges on.
