Tottenham could be set to raid Barcelona for up to three of their defensive starlets according to

Having already been linked with the likes of Martin Montoya and Marc Batra, the Barclays Premier League outfit are now considering a move for talented left-back Carles Planas.

The 20-year-old, who currently plays for Barca's B-team, is a Spanish U21 international, and is highly rated in La Maisa.

However, with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2012, and the La Liga giants seemingly stalling on the offer of a new deal, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is ready to pounce in an attempt to bring him to White Hart Lane.

Planas' progress has been hampered by injury in the past few years, but now fully fit, he has set about the task of proving his undoubted potential.

A source close to the club is confident that Barcelona will let Planas go to Tottenham with the option of a buy-back clause in the next two years.
