Tottenham plotting move for Basel star

Mohamed Salah (Basel)Tottenham are plotting a move for Basel midfielder Mohamed Salah, according to reports from The Metro.

The Egyptian was impressive for the Swiss giants last season, helping them to claim the league title and make an impact in Europe.

His performances have seen interest in his signature spike of late, with Spurs believed to be leading the way.

Both Inter Milan and Roma are keen on the 21-year-old, but Andre Villas-Boas is thought to be keen to beat them to Salah with a move in either January or next summer.

Basel are desperate to keep him, but are thought to be willing to do business for around £7m.

Salah has been lauded for his pace and attacking instincts, which may see interest in his services increate further before the transfer window re-opens.

Despite having spent in excess of £100m ahead of the current campaign, AVB is still thought to be keen to invest in his squad.

The Portuguese coach has much cash at his disposal after allowing Gareth Bale to complete a world-record £86m move to Real Madrid.

Spurs have also been linked with a shock move for Chelsea’s disgruntled playmaker Juan Mata.

The Spaniard has seen his status as one of the Blues’ key men eroded under new manager Jose Mourinho.

Do Tottenham really need another midfielder?
