Tottenham will make a move for Real Madrid left-back and Manchester United summer target Fabio Coentrao in January, according to the Daily Mail.

Reports suggest Andre Villas-Boas has been given the licence to go on another spending spree - after the Portuguese tactician wasted no time in spending the £85million they received from the sale of Gareth Bale.

The north London side spent a reported £108million on trying to replace last season’s PFA Player of the Year, with the likes of Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen all moving to White Hart Lane.

However the spending is set to continue as Tottenham chief executive Daniel Levy has given Villas-Boas the green light to bring in reinforcements when the transfer window re-opens in January.

AVB is said to be keen on bringing in a defender as Danny Rose is the only orthodox left-back currently at his disposal.

Portuguese star Coentrao, who has fallen behind Marcelo in the Real Madrid pecking order, is said to be high on AVB’s list of targets.

However Tottenham may face competition from Premier League champions Manchester United, who were close to completing a deadline day loan move for the 25-year-old.
