Although the Italian would be keen to hold onto the youngster, it is thought the a £10 million bid would be to good to turn down for a player likely to warm the bench for the Blues next season.
Meanwhile, 20-year old Brazilian Oscar is being courted by Spurs as a potential replacement for want away Croatian Luka Modric. The 26-year old playmaker has expressed his desire to leave North London and Real Madrid have shown interest. Oscar, whose current club have slapped a £20 million asking price on their youngster, almost signing for QPR last season but work permit issues halted the move. It is thought that the Brazilian, capped three times for his nation would be interested in a move to England and with a midfield vacancy looming through Modric’s probable departure, Oscar could play a key role in Villas-Boas’ new side at White Hart Lane.
