Tottenham Hotspur face competition from clubs in Italy and Spain to land defender Serdar Tasci.

The German international has been linked with a handful of clubs in the last 12 months, but reports in the player's homeland now claim three teams are in the running for Tasci's signature.

Juventus and Sevilla have joined Spurs in the race for the player's signature, with talkSPORT reporting a valuation in the region of £12 million by current club Stuttgart.

The British radio station goes on to claim that the centre back is keen to test his abilities in a different league, paving the way for an exit from the Bundesliga this summer.

Harry Redknapp is known to be in the market for a defender, with the Tottenham Hotspur manager searching for reinforcements in the position during the transfer window.


With Ledley King's track record of injuries coupled with the departure of Jonathan Woodgate last week, Spurs have been linked with a number of players in the position over the past fortnight.

Chris Samba and Gary Cahill have both speculatively been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, although both are being coveted by Champions League clubs, something Spurs can no longer offer after finishing fifth in the Barclays Premier League last term.

Tasci is the latest name in the Tottenham Hotspur frame, although Redknapp will be braced for a transfer scrap if he wants to bring the 24-year-old to north London.
