English duo could make Goodison Park switch.
Everton are plotting a double bid in January for Tottenham duo Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone, according to CaughtOffside.
Dawson, 28, is also wanted by QPR and is yet to start a league match under Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.
The former England centre-back nearly joined the Rs in the final week of the summer transfer window but opted to stay in North London to fight for his place.
It is understood that the Toffees have joined the list of Dawson’s suitors and could make a bid for him in January, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy valuing the former Nottingham Forest stopper at around the £8m mark.
The Merseyside outfit are also tracking Dawson’s teammate Tom Huddletsone, who also nearly left Spurs in August.
Pass-master Huddlestone held talks with Stoke but remained at White Hart Lane after Scott Parker underwent surgery on is achilles.
The bulky 25-year-old has started Spurs last two league games in a deep-lying midfield role but it is thought that he doesn’t have the attributes for Villas-Boas’ preferred pressing tactics and the Portuguese is ready to listen to offers for midfielder.
The frugal Goodison Park club may offer to loan both players, as they did with Steven Pienaar last January, but Tottenham want cash up front to fund January bids for Joao Moutinho and Willian of Shakhtar.
