TOTTENHAM have categorically denied the claims of Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini, who asserts that Spurs have made a �28million double bid for Simon Kjaer and Edinson Cavani.

Danish international centre-back Kjaer is being tracked by a number of Europe's top clubs, and Spurs have been long-term admirers of the 21-year-old.

Striker Cavani is currently in action at the World Cup with Uruguay, and played the full 90 minutes of the 2-1 win over South Korea in the last 16 on Saturday.

"Tottenham have bid 35m euros, an offer we cannot refuse, seeing as the two players have both said they want to leave," Zamparini said today.

However, Spurs have responded quickly to counter that claim. "Palermo's claims are inaccurate. We have not bid for these players," said a club spokesman.
