Tottenham are planning an offer for Lyon midfielder Miralem Pjanic, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Mail, Pjanic's potential arrival in north London would cast further doubt over the future of Luka Modric at the club, as Chelsea continue to fight for his signature.

Chelsea have reportedly had two official offers for Modric rebuffed by Spurs, who maintain that that 25-year-old will not be leaving White Hart Lane.

However, Spurs assistant boss Kevin Bond yesterday admitted the club may be forced to sell Modric, should a 'head turning' offer be made, although he later retracted his comments.


He said: "For the purpose of clarification and in case my comments this morning inadvertently misled anyone, the club's position on Luka Modric is quite clear - we have no intention of selling him."

Pjanic, meanwhile, is a highly-rated playmaker whose reputation has been significantly enhanced in recent seasons.

The Bosnia international, 21, joined Lyon from Metz in 2008, despite Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid being credited with interest, and has since made 36 league starts for the French outfit.
