Spurs bid for Sanchez?

Reports in England suggest Tottenham are contemplating a bid for Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez in January.

According to the Daily Star Spurs boss Andre Villas Boas, mindful of the loss of striker Emmanuel Adebayor to the African Nations Cup, has asked Chairman Daniel Levy for the Chilean winger.

Former Udinese man Sanchez has made 12 appearances for the Blaugrana in all competitions so far this season, scoring one goal.

His sale, the speculation continues, would be used to generate funds for the purchase of Santos starlet Neymar.
