Spurs leading the race for £20 million Portuguese star ahead of Chelsea, United, Liverpool etc;

It was been reported in several papers yesterday that Tottenham are looking to sign FC Porto midfielder Ricardo Quaresma but they must beat off competition several European big names like Manchester United, Lyon, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Real Madrid.

The player is apparently keen on a move to the Londoners but Spurs will have to cough up as much as £20 million. That will probably mean that Spurs manager Juande Ramos will be forced to sell one of his big name strikers like Bent, Defoe or Berbatov.

I have seen Quaresma a few times now and I must say he's something special. The 24-year old joined Porto back in 2004 after a spell with Spanish giants Barcelona.

I would personally love to see him join the Premier League and I think Spurs would be the ideal destination because he is guaranteed first team football every week and I think Spurs need a flamboyant character like Quaresma.

Quaresma was conversely left out of Portugal's World Cup side back in 2006 after having a terrific season with Porto. Although Quaresma is a midfielder, he seldom defends. He has been widely criticised by the Portuguese media for the lack of defensive play in his game.

    Spurs if given the chance should buy him. He would grace the premiership better than Ronaldo.

    Ramos's policy must definitely be the best form of defence is ATTACK! Sounds a good shout, but we must shore up the defence! As for selling, 30 million of the 40 million is money we received from the new SKY deal, we do not need to sell anybody, except for players not up to it! COYS!
