In a busy morning of transfer news, Tottenham are set to turn their hand from doing everything in their powers to keep a star player to investing in a couple. The Sun claims that Harry Redknapp is set to join the race to sign Bolton and England defender Gary Cahill. The paper claims that the Harry Redknapp is a long term admirer of the defender and after having an enquiry for the player turned down in January is set to reignite his interest in the player. Harry Redkanpp has been highly impressed with the way Cahill has taken to international football and believes the defender has what it takes to help tighten up a leaky defence and help the club reclaim a top four spot.

The Sun claims that Tottenham are the favourites to sign the player because of Redknapp would be willing to allow a player to leave White Hart Lane as a make weight for the deal. The paper claims that the player to leave would be Sebastien Bassong who would be a like for like replacement for Cahill as well as the much needed cash that would go some way to easing up the financial pressures at the Reebok Stadium. Bolton boss, Owen Coyle has reiterated that Bolton will be looking for the full £17m release clause they have on the player, commenting: "He won't be going on the cheap, that's for sure.

Tuesdays Mirror claims that Tottenham will step up their search for a new striker by offering Espanyol £17m for highly rated Argentine striker Pablo Osvaldo. The Argentine is one of the most sought after properties this transfer window after netting thirteen goals last season and Fulham have already had a £10.5m offer turned down. The paper claim that Tottenham will land the striker if they meet Espanyol's asking price.

Sticking with The Mirror and the newspaper claims that Tottenham would like start talks with Roma over the availability of Montenegro international Mirko Vucinic. The Roma player is said to want to leave Italy but Roma's £18m price tag is making that very difficult. Roma supremo, Walter Sabatani is due for talks in London with Arsenal this week, and Harry Redknapp is keen to schedule a meeting negotiate a deal for the player.
