Chelsea have not given up hope of signing Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric, it has been claimed.

The Blues tried desperately to secure the signature of Modric during the summer, but Spurs rejected as many as three separate bids for the Croatian playmaker.

However, according to The Telegraph, Andre Villas-Boas still retains an ambition to bring Modric to Stamford Bridge, and a possible January bid has also been discussed with the Chelsea hierarchy.

Modric, though, expects to remain at White Hart Lane until the summer at least, while Spurs want to tie the 25-year-old down to a new bumper contract.

Chelsea, meanwhile, agreed on Friday a fee with Bolton over the proposed transfer of England defender Gary Cahill.

However, Villas-Boas has revealed a deal is far from done, with the player's representatives and Chelsea 'miles apart' so far in discussions regarding personal terms.
