Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has admitted he is setting his sights on recruiting more Romanian talent, reports talkSPORT.

Villas-Boas completed the signing of Romanian centre back Vlad Chiriches during the summer from Steaua Bucharest, and he has so far looked arguably the most impressive of all the summer recruits.

Tottenham spent over £100million on new talent in the summer, and Chiriches is so far looking the best value for money at £8.5million.

His performances have led to speculation that AVB could be set to return to Steaua Bucharest and make a January offer for club captain Alex Bourceanu.

And the Tottenham boss has admitted Bourceanu is among several players he is currently monitoring at the Romanian club.

He said: “There are a couple of Romanian players who are very interesting, particularly at Steaua [Bucharest], but I cannot mention them for obvious reasons.

“But I think there is always talent coming out of Romanian football. I think it’s always a market that we have to be aware of.”

24-year-old Chiriches has started five Premier League games for Tottenham this season, and recently scored his first goal for the club in the 2-1 win at Fulham.

He is in line to start the crucial clash with Liverpool at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
