Tottenham Hotspur back in for £15m Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano - report

Tottenham Hotspur will make a £15 million bid for Sevilla's Brazilian frontman Luis Fabiano should they reach the group stage of the Champions League, according to a report from talkSPORT.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will sanction the move should the north Londoners manage to overturn the 3-2 deficit they face from the first leg of their Champions League qualifier against Young Boys of Berne.

Spurs have long been linked with the Brazilian international, who last week was believed to be in discussions with Olympique Marseille about a potential move, with Sevilla quoting a €18m (£14.8m) fee for his services. That, and the player's reported £90,000-a-week wages, have been indicated as something of a stumbling block in any deal this summer.

However, with Spurs set to net £6m if they manage to beat Young Boys and a further £10m even if they do not win a single game, the move now looks like more of a possibility with boss Harry Redknapp desperate to strengthen his strikeforce.

Luis Fabiano himself is now believed to be more open to the move after an initial reluctance. At 29, the Brazilian apparently would relish the challenge of testing himself in the Premier League.
