One of Andre Villas-Boas' centre-back targets, Ajax's Toby Alderweireld, looks set to snub the club and move to Roma instead.
The Spurs boss has been linked with a move for the defender as he looks to strengthen his squad in the summer but it would appear he has missed out.
The 24-year-old was wanted by Liverpool and Newcastle as well but, according to reports in Italy, Roma have nipped in and done a deal ahead of their rivals.
Villas-Boas has plenty of summer targets but their availability could depend on Spurs' Champions League qualification or otherwise, as they sit a point behind Arsenal with two games to go.
