Inter Milan hope Tottenham will accept a cash-plus-player offer for Mousa Dembele, according to reports in Italy.
Dembele has just one year left on his contract with Spurs and is expected to leave the club this summer.
Clubs in Italy and China have been heavily linked with a move for the midfielder, with Inter thought to be chief among his suitors.
Italian outlet Tuttosport (via talkSPORT) claims Tottenham have slapped a £26 million price tag on Dembele, a hefty fee for a player with just a year remaining on his current deal.
The report suggests Inter are only prepared to pay £10 million for the Belgian.
However, they would be willing to include a player on top of the £10 million in order to tempt Spurs into selling Dembele.
Tuttosport believes Joao Mario, who spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham United, is the favourite to be used as a makeweight.
Tottenham fans will probably be hoping for a bigger name than Joao Mario, but the Portugal international would provide a decent squad option for Mauricio Pochettino.
