Tottenham’s pursuit of FC Porto winger Christian Atsu could be in doubt after a £12m price-tag was placed on the winger’s head.

The 20-year-old Ghanaian international is a target of Andre Villas-Boas with the former Porto boss sending scouts to the Estadio de Dragao recently to watch the left-sided winger.

However, Atsu is keen to remain with the Portuguese outfit as they battle for another league title under Villas-Boas’ successor, Vitor Pereira.

"We are in talks to renew the contract. Porto are a great club and I want to stay. These things are in the hands of my manager. I only think about playing, nothing more," Atsu told A Bola.

Villas-Boas called a 17-year-old Atsu up to the senior Porto side in May 2010 but eventually elected to leave the five-cap Ghanaian international on the bench as Porto beat CS Maritimo.
