Spurs in talks to sign Diarra from Real Madrid

Spurs are reported to be in talks with Real Madrid about a possible deal for French midfielder Lassana Diarra.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is looking to resign the player he brought to Portsmouth in 2008 for £5.5m before later selling to Real Madrid for £20m.

Spurs are looking to strengthen their midfield and Diarra is reported to be top of the list following West Ham’s reluctance to sell their captain Scott Parker.

Real are looking to trim their squad to 25 players and the recent arrival of German international Mesut Ozil means that Diarra is considered surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu.

Tottenham tried to sign the former Chelsea and Arsenal player back in 2008 but lost out to Redknapp’s Portsmouth, however, it now looks as if they will capture the 25-year-old for a reported fee of £10m.
