Spurs are still interested in signing Everton midfielder Ross Barkley for £30m.
However, it has not been Mauricio Pochettino who has been driving the interest for the England international but his No 2 Jesus Perez. Regardless, the club are still willing to do a deal with Everton for around £30m.
The 23-year-old has also attracted interest from Chelsea during this summer but he is out until December with a hamstring injury and only has one year remaining on his contract at Goodison Park.
The Blues recently had a £25m bid for Barkley rejected but talks between the two clubs are still ongoing.
