Tottenham eye late transfer swoop

Tom Ince (Blackpool)Tottenham have opened talks with Blackpool regarding an £8million move for winger Tom Ince, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The ex-Liverpool youth player has been on Spurs’ radar for much of 2013, but the Londoners have opted against making a move until now.

With the transfer deadline quickly approaching, White Hart Lane chief Andre Villas-Boas is hopeful that he can push through a late move.

Ince rejected a switch to Cardiff earlier this summer, in a bid to force the interest of a more established team.

It is believed that the 21-year-old sees Tottenham as the ideal platform for his talents, despite the North Londoners having signed a number of attacking players in recent months.

AVB has prepared for life without Gareth Bale – who is set to join Real Madrid – by securing deals for the likes of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli.

With competition high, Spurs are believed to be willing to allow Ince to stay with the Seasiders for the remainder of the campaign – in a similar agreement reached between Manchester United and Crystal Palace for Wilfied Zaha earlier this year.

Tottenham have already spent over £100m on new players, but are set to recoup around £80m for Bale.

Would Tom Ince be making a mistake in joining Tottenham?
