Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly given licence to spend £50m on new players before Friday's transfer deadline.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly poised to embark on a £50m shopping spree this week.

Spurs are expected to recoup around £30m from the sale of midfielder Luka Modric to Real Madrid, while Michael Dawson could also depart White Hart Lane for £9m if he can agree personal terms with Queens Park Rangers.

According to the Metro, Villas-Boas will be allowed to reinvest all income from the club's summer sales to bring in at least two midfielders and a goalkeeper.

Shakhtar Donetsk's Willian, Porto's Joao Moutinho, Fulham's Moussa Dembele and Raul Meireles of Chelsea have all be touted as possible midfield targets for Spurs.

France number one Hugo Lloris and Roma stopper Maarten Stekelenburg are believed to be at the top of Villas-Boas's list of most-wanted goalkeepers.
