New Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino plans to make Swansea left-back Ben Davies his first signing for the club with an £8 million bid. 

According to The Mirror, Spurs have approached the Welsh club with an offer for the 21-year-old, who rose through the ranks at the Liberty Stadium club.

Davies, who played 33 matches in the Barclays Premier League last season, will go head-to-head with England international Danny Rose for the left-back spot at White Hart Lane.

Defensive problems

The London club shipped 51 goals last season and suffered heavy defeats to Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea. The Welsh international, who has represented his country 10 times since making his debut in 2012, will sure up the defence for the season approaching.

The Mirror reports that Gary Monk was reluctant to see the player, who has made 84 appearances for the club in all competitions, leave over the summer, but a bid of this size was too good to decline for the club.

Esteban Cambiasso

Another imminent player at Spurs, according to the Express, is former Inter Milan and Real Madrid veteran Esteban Cambiasso.

The 33-year-old Argentine, who was released by the Serie A club last month, will be brought in as Pochettino looks to add some experience to his Spurs squad.

The Express also reports that Spurs and local rivals Arsenal are set to make last ditch bids for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, in an attempt to steal him away from Italian Champions Juventus, who are believed to be in pole position for the Spaniards signature.
