Juventus target Spurs defender Kaboul

Italian side Juventus have earmarked Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul as one of their January targets, The Daily Mail reports.

The Serie A leaders were originally interested in Zenit defender Bruno Alves, but believe that if they are involved in a bidding war with Liverpool, they will lose out to the Reds. Kaboul has been identified as the next defensive target, but will find it difficult to prize Kaboul away from the North Londoners. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp praised Kaboul’s performance against Aston Villa last Monday and the French defender has played every minute of Spurs’ Premier League campaign this season.

The 25 year old was signed from Portsmouth for £9.5m two years ago and if a deal can be achieved, then they will have to match or better the pricetag that Spurs paid. Juve had also been interested in Gareth Bale from Spurs, but Redknapp is against selling his top stars and will be backed by chairman Daniel Levy. Levy managed to keep Luka Modric at the club this summer amid rumours of Chelsea’s interest and Bale will stay with Spurs, as long as top players remain.
