Paris Saint-Germain have refused to rule out a move for Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric, who is also a target for the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, and Real Madrid.
New Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas confirmed on Wednesday that Modric wants to leave White Hart Lane, stating that discussions with "various interested clubs" are taking place.
Villas-Boas insists, however, the playmaker will only be sold if the right offer comes in, as speculation continues that both Man Utd and Real Madrid are unwilling to meet Tottenham's valuation.
PSG are closing in on the signings of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a €60million deal after having a bid for the duo accepted by AC Milan, and it appears that the French giants, backed by their new Qatari owners, could steal a march on clubs showing interest in Modric.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti said of the Croatia international: "I did not need to see him at the Euro to know how much talent he has.
"I knew his capabilities before. Now he has confirmed his high quality for those who did not know."
But when pressed on whether he would lodge a bid for the 26-year-old, the former Chelsea boss told AS: "I know that is what matters most now, but I am sorry to disappoint you. I cannot speak publicly about the transfer market.
"You have to understand that it would be foolish of me to speak openly about our objectives and movements in relation to quality players."
It is believed Modric wants to move to Madrid, although Manchester United is more likely to appeal to him than a move to France.
PSG, however, appear to be the more likely side to meet Tottenham's £35million+ valuation.
