Tottenham have offered Italy star Andrea Pirlo a three-year deal and hope that an agreement can be reached by January, according to the Daily Star.

The 34-year-old, who won the World Cup in 2006, could leave Serie A champions Juventus when his contract expires at the end of this season.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas and technical director Franco Baldini are determined to secure a deal when the transfer window re-opens, according to Italian publication Calcio Mercato, but Spurs are likely to face stiff competition for his signature from several of their Premier League rivals.

It's believed that Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are all keen on the veteran Italian, who previously spent ten successful years with AC Milan before leaving the San Siro in 2011.

Pirlo is widely considered one of the best deep-lying playmakers in world football, but this is not the first time this year that the creative midfielder has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane.

Former Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli recently revealed: “I’ve heard rumours from England that there has been contact between Pirlo and Tottenham for next season.”

However, Spurs have yet to either confirm or deny their interest in the player.
