Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas is set for a busy few days in the transfer market after making official offers for France internationals Hugo Lloris and Yann M'Vila.
Yesterday evening it was reported by the BBC that Tottenham had made an offer of £12.7million with add-ons for Rennes midfielder M'Vila.
The French club has now asked for face-to-face talks, but it seems that Tottenham's offer is currently the only option, despite rumoured interest from numerous clubs around Europe.
M'Vila did play in the 3-2 win over Bastia at the weekend, but the BBC believes that he would be interested in moving to White Hart Lane and had been prepared to travel to London in order to undertake a medical and discuss personal terms.
That could well now happen in the coming days as the transfer window closes on Friday and all parties will have to come to an agreement in the next four days.
The midfielder is not the only target for Villas -Boas as this morning Bloomberg has revealed that Tottenham have made a similar offer, believed to be €16million (£12.7m), to Lyon for goalkeeper Lloris.
Lyon had informed Lloris that he would be allowed to leave in the summer if a reasonable offer was made. Spurs have been looking to sign a new keeper who can inherit the number one shirt from veteran stopper Brad Friedel.
The 42-year-old is coming towards the end of a long career and Villas-Boas is keen to find a long-term replacement.
Lloris is regarded as the best keeper in France and has long been the number one choice for France, having started every game at Euro 2012 and been installed as captain by manager Laurent Blanc.
At 25-years-old he still has a long career ahead of him and would certainly rival Friedel for a starting berth having been named goalkeeper of the year for the third time in Ligue 1 last season.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas predicted an offer would arrive from Spurs and believes the choice will solely come down to Lloris.
"The decision belongs to Hugo, who, I think, will be approached by Tottenham very soon," Aulas told the BBC. "It is up to him to decide if the conditions of the transfer are suitable, in terms of what he expects in fiscal and sporting terms."
