Tottenham Hotspur are considering a move to sign Liverpool target Thomas Ince at the of the season, according to the Mirror.
The Blackpool starlet was linked with a move to Anfield after they failed to sign him in January. The report suggests the north London club are preparing a £6.5m bid to bring the winger to White Hart Lane, which could be hard for the Seasiders' chief, Karl Oyston to reject.
The 21-year-old has been in impressive form for Blackpool this season, scoring 18 goals and registering 144 assists in 43 appearances. His brilliant performance has now seen him make into the Championship team of the Year.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is now believed to have entered into negotiations with the Championship side to sign Ince in the summer. The England U21 international can operate on either side of the wings and his versatile style of play could make him fit into Andre Villas-Boas' squad.
The Mirror claims Ince could be an ideal replacement for his compatriot Aaron Lennon, who has been in and out of action due to injuries. Meanwhile, Ince had earlier expressed his desire to play at the "top level", only when he feels the time is right for him.
The Championship star also fits into Spurs bill and should he make a move to the north London club in the summer, it will give the Portuguese manager more options out on the wide positions.
Bale Unaware of His Free Kick Technique
Meanwhile, Spurs star Gareth Bale claims it's "hard to explain" his free kick technique. The 23-year-old played a vital role in the north London club's progress, for which he won the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year on Sunday has played.
"It's hard to explain what I do. You use everything - the valve on the ball, pressing it down into the floor, everything. Then you just keep practising the technique and I've been practising it for a while now," Bale said.
"I think the first one to do it was Juninho at Lyon. Obviously Ronaldo then took it to the next level. It's something that works but do I know what the ball is going to do? No - I haven't a clue!," he added.
