Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell, according to reports.
The England U21 international is currently on duty for the Young Lions in Denmark, and came off the bench for Stuart Pearce's side in the 1-1 draw against Spain on Sunday night.
Tipped for a bright future at both domestic level and with his country, Spurs have emerged as a possible destination for the 20-year-old this summer, according to the News of the World.
Manchester United were thought to be favourites in the battle to sign the talented youngster this summer, with the Red Devils tracking the player's progress for around a year now.
However, The Metro claims that last season's struggle to hold down a first team place at Goodison Park has 'stalled' the interest of Manchester United, who instead have turned to Phil Jones in a £16.5 million deal.
This has left the transfer door open to Spurs, who would look to fund the transfer with the sale of Jermaine Jenas, Jamie O'Hata and Wilson Palacios, claims The Metro.
Harry Redknapp is thought to be keen on adding a number of fresh faces to the cause at White Hart Lane this summer, with the Tottenham Hotspur boss confirming that he's asked chairman Daniel Levy to splash the cash on three quality players.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson made similar claims at the end of May, stating that the Red Devils would look to make 'two or three' additions during the transfer window.
With Rodwell no longer on their radar, competition appears to be less fierce for the versatile youngster, although it's unknown if Spurs will be willing to meet the high valuation set by the Toffees.
