£16 million Spurs midfielder set for early exit?

Juventus are preparing a January move for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric. The Croatian international has struggled to to make any kind of impact in the Premier League since his £16 million move from Dynamo Zagreb in the summer and Juve boss Claudio Ranieri is ready to offer Modric an exit door from White Hart Lane.

The 23-year old was linked with several of Europe's elite before his move to Spurs in the summer with Juve rumoured to be among his admirers. After a promising pre-season with the North London club, Modric has played a part in the club's worst start for the past century, which sees Juande Ramos' side sit bottom of the league with just two points.

This may be the best thing for all parties. Spurs could cut their losses from the signing of Modric, the player can start fresh at one of the best teams in Serie A and Juve will have a terrific midfield player with over 30 caps for his country. If Juve were to make a bid of £15 million, I feel Ramos (supposing he is still at the club) would be mad not to accept.
