Tottenham have tried to poach Juventus' sporting director, Fabio Paratici on several occasions, according to Calciomercato.com.
The reports suggest that the London side are ready to almost double Paratici's current salary, but the Italian has refused all of their offers so far.
Fabio Paratici is the right-hand man of Juve's general director Guiseppe Marotta, as the duo played a key role in the Old Lady's revival during the last four seasons.

Paratici was part of the team to land players like Andrea Pirlo, Fernando Llorente and most notably Paul Pogba without spending a penny. He was also responsible for convincing Carlos Tevez to come to Turin in 2013. Since his arrival, the Old Lady have won four consecutive Serie A titles and were runners-up in last season's Champions League final.
According to the reports, despite Paratici's initial rejection, the Premier League side are ready to approach with another offer in an attempt to lure the transfer guru away from Turin.
It is also believed that the Italian champions are ready to offer a new contract to Paratici, but Spurs consider him as the perfect replacement to Franco Baldini, who recently left the club and they are not prepared to give up on the Juve man so easily.
It's no secret that Baldini was heavily criticised by the Tottenham supporters, as they blame him for the way he spent the money from the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in 2013.
During the same summer, the former Roma director spent the exaggerating £52 million on players like Roberto Soldado, Etienne Capoue and Paulinho who flopped heavily at White Hart Lane.
