Cardiff City have made a bid of £8million for Tottenham Hotspur defender Steven Caulker, according to the Mail Online.
The 21 year old is valued at around £12million, but the Bluebirds are hopeful that a deal including add-ons will suffice.
Liverpool and Manchester City have also been linked with a move for the centre-back, but Cardiff are the only club to follow up their interest with an offer.
Caulker broke into the Spurs first team last season having spent the previous three seasons on loan with Yeovil Town, Bristol City and Cardiff’s fierce rivals Swansea City.
However, he started just seventeen league matches under Andres Villas-Boas last season, and with the club having signed Romania international Vlad Chiriches, there is concern that he once again will not get enough games if he stays in North London.
He has just one full international cap to his name, and with the World Cup next summer, will be keen to play regularly in order to be considered as part of Roy Hodgson’s squad should England qualify.
