Tottenham looking to take advantage of Cardiff relegation with double swoop

North London club Tottenham are interested in securing a double deal for the Cardiff City duo of David Marshall and Steven Caulker, reports the Daily Mirror.

Spurs are desperate to bolster their defence ahead of next season as several of their key players, including star goalie Hugo Lloris and Belgian centre-half Jan Vertonghen, could move out of the club in search of Champions League football this summer.

Lloris and Vertonghen are reportedly frustrated at not being involved in a top European competition for the two years since they arrived at White Hart Lane, and Spurs are now forced to search for apt reinforcements for the duo.

While Caulker, 22, only recently left Spurs for Cardiff last summer, the Lilywhites management see big potential in him and want him back this summer. Caulker too might be open for a step up in his career as the Bluebirds are now on set to play in the Championship next season.

Cardiff goalie David Marshall, 29, is also being courted by Spurs after his impressive performances this season, and could be available for 6 million pounds despite having signed a new deal at Cardiff recently.

A hindrance for Spurs in securing the deal for the duo though would be the lingering interest in the pair from Liverpool, who too are keen to snap up both players to bolster their reserves in preparation for Champions League football next season.
