Andre Villas-Boas dismisses claims from Miroslav Klose that Tottenham Hotspur were interested in the German striker in the summer.

Andre Villas-Boas has insisted that Tottenham Hotspur did not make any attempt to sign Miroslav Klose from Lazio this summer.

The German striker claimed last week that he rejected a move to White Hart Lane but the Spurs boss revealed that the veteran was never a target.

Villas Boas told Gazzetta dello Sport: "The player had been offered to us by the usual round of agents, but there was never any real negotiation.

"Klose is an important player, but I have very good strikers. With Defoe, Adebayor and Dempsey, I can feel comfortable."

The 34-year-old is expected to start for Lazio when Spurs host the Italian club in the Europa League on Thursday.
