It appears Spurs are pulling out all the stops to sign Adrien Rabiot.
The 23-year-old is out of contract at Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, and seems set on cutting his ties with the French giants.
A host of clubs have expressed an interest. From Barcelona to Liverpool not to mention Spurs who are prepared to offer a massive offer to lure him to North London.
It's reported that Spurs are 'going all in on' Rabiot by tabling a £6.5 million a year contract - as well as a £4.3 million signing on fee - which will shatter the clubs current wage structure, per reports via Get French Football News.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has also assured the Frenchman a guaranteed place in the starting XI.
Despite the lucrative offer, Rabiot is hesitating. The report also claims 'he had thought that if he were to ever come to the Premier League, it would be to join Liverpool'.
Not long ago, Rabiot considered Spurs "below" his standards, according to ESPN.
Spurs are hellbent on snapping up the talented midfielder with former teammates Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura doing their best to convince him.
PSG's sporting director Antero Henrique has confirmed Rabiot's future lies away from the French capital.
"At this point, no. It was a decision made by the club following a meeting I had with the player," he told Yahoo! Sports.
"The player informed me that he would not sign a contract and that he wanted to leave the club by being free at the end of the season.
"For the player, this will have a very clear consequence: he will remain on the bench for an indefinite period."
Barcelona's interest in Rabiot has waned following the signing of Ajax starlet Frenkie de Jong. They pipped PSG to his signature by snapping him up for a reported £65 million.
