Tottenham are set for further talks this week over the signing of Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.
Chairman Daniel Levy is understood to be personally leading the club’s pursuit of the England U21 right-back, leaving Fabio Paratici to concentrate on other targets.
Initial talks between Spurs and Boro were not successful in finding an agreement, with the north London club indicating they believe his worth to be in excess of £10m.
Boro, however, want at least £15m plus add-ons – so the conversation did not go further.
Spurs remain keen, however, and are discussing their next approach, with the player also determined to join Antonio Conte’s squad.
Tottenham – as a club – want to bring in more young English talent this summer to backup and develop under their more senior players.
