Trio chase midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham are reportedly in a race with both Liverpool and Everton for the services of Real Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago.

Reports from Spain suggest the Argentine midfielder will be allowed to leave the Bernabeu this summer as he has failed to nail down a regular starting spot under Jose Mourinho.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is not alone in wanting him though as, Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool and David Moyes at Everton, have been linked with the player.

Gago has two years left on his present deal in the Spanish capital and Real would apparently not consider allowing him to leave for less than £10m. But that figure has not put off any of the would be suitors, although Everton may have to sell before they could buy.
