New boss to land playmaker
Andre Villas-Boas could be named the new boss of Spurs as early as this week, with Alan Dzagoev set to become his first signing.
The former Chelsea boss has held discussions with the board at Spurs and the suggestion is that he will be unveiled as Harry Redknapp's replacement before the end of the week.
One of his first jobs will be to try and persuade Luka Modric to stay at the club, but he looks Real Madrid-bound meaning there is a need for a play maker and Dzagoev fits the bill.
The 22-year-old had a good tournament with Russia in Euro 2012 and has many suitors but Spurs have already registered their interest, according to his father.
"I don't know if he will stay at CSKA," said his father, Tariel.
"There are offers - from Spurs and other foreign clubs. But I tell him not to hurry. Yury Zhirkov ran off to Chelsea and sat on the bench."
