Spurs step up interest in Blackburn star

TalkSPORT reports that Spurs are ready to offer cash plus Sebastian Bassong for the highly-rated Congo international.

Samba has admitted he wants to leave Blackburn, despite signing a new long-term contract with the club earlier this year.

The 27-year-old is keen on a move to Arsenal, but Spurs are reportedly leading the chase for the defender.
