Spurs linked with Palermo duo

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have launched a massive double bid to sign Denmark defender Simon Kjaer and Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani.

Twenty-one-year-old centre-back Kjaer was part of the Danish squad that failed to reach the knockout stages at the World Cup finals at South Africa.

He has also been linked with a number of top clubs across Europe, having denied rumours of a move to Bayern Munich in recent times.

Cavani, 23, is on the wanted list of German club Wolfsburg, but Spurs may be about to win the race for both players.

Zamparini told the Italian press:"The interest from Tottenham in Kjaer and Cavani is real.

"Negotiations are ongoing, but the full price to sell both players will be around 35million euros. If the deal they guarantee us is satisfying, then we will accept."
