Tottenham Hotspur are in the market to sign both David Villa and Liverpool target Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The club are desperate to add firepower to a squad that was perhaps over-reliant on goals from Gareth Bale last season.

Barcelona are willing to sell Villa, however Spurs aren't willing to match the clubs £12million valuation.

Villa has been one of Europe's finest strikers for years, but hasn't been the same since fracturing his tibia in 2012.

In what was deemed a disappointing campaign for the former Valencia man last year, he still reached double figures in La Liga. Realistically though now is his last chance at one big move and is willing to join Spurs according to reports.

As for Mkhitaryan, Liverpool and his club Shakthar Donetsk are still no closer to agreeing a fee and Spurs are willing to come and swoop in.

Last year Spurs brought two Liverpool targets (Gylfi Sigurdsson and Clint Dempsey), who had both had looked set to join Anfield.

Tottenham are financially well backed and would have no problems meeting Mkhitaryan's asking price., however the Armenian does have his heart set on an Anfield move.

One deal that is close though is the move for Paulinho. Corinthians and Spurs agreed a fee last week and the deal should be complete after the Confederations Cup.

Tottenham exits

Andre Villas-Boas has told numerous Spurs players they are free to leave should a bid come in for them.

Scott Parker, Emmanuel Adebayor, Tom Huddlestone, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Jake Livermore aren't part of Villas-Boas's first team players next season.
