Tottenham keep tabs on Feyenoord midfielder Clasie
Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly set their sights on Feyenoord midfielder Jordy Clasie as Andre Villas-Boas looks to bolster a midfield that lost the talents of Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart in the summer.
Indeed, despite the arrivals of Moussa Dembele, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Clint Dempsey, Villas-Boas’ pursuit of Joao Moutinho hints that the 34-year-old remains unsatisfied with the state of his side’s midfield.
According to the Daily Mail, Clasie’s £5m price tag appeals to the Spurs hierarchy, who have been stung by Porto’s asking price of more than £20m for Moutinho.
Clasie, a recent Holland international, has been tipped by Dutch boss Louis van Gaal as a star of the future for the national team as it looks to rebuild following their disastrous Euro 2012 campaign.
Tottenham have been on a superb run of late, with four straight Premier League victories taking the Lilywhites to fifth place with 14 points from seven matches played.
