Tottenham are being linked with Everton defender Leighton Baines but any move will hinge on finishing in the Champions League.
Spurs face a battle to finish in the top four and a place in Europe's elite competition for next season would mean boss Andre Villas-Boas having a completely different transfer budget.
With Benoit Assou-Ekotto set to move to France in the summer, Villas-Boas has made signing a new left-back one of his top priorities, and is willing to pay as much as £12million to land Baines.
The England international still has two years to run on his contract at Goodison Park but Everton could face a battle to keep hold as Manchester United are also long-time admires.
