JOHN Terry has encouraged Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas to make another bid for Tottenham’s Luka Modric.
The Blues have seen two offers for the Croatian rejected by Spurs and are widely expected to table a third bid of around £30million.
Modric has gone public with his desire to move to Stamford Bridge but has been met with stubborn resistance from Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
However, Chelsea skipper Terry is hopeful a deal can be struck as he regards the 25-year-old as a “world class” player who would add quality to Villas-Boas’ squad.
"He's a world class player who is very difficult to play against," Terry told Sky Sports News.
"He's very agile, very quick and a great finisher like we've seen over many years.
"I know there are problems. It's probably a little bit disrespectful towards Spurs. He has his own problems at the moment.
"We've got a good squad of players. If he comes he could certainly add to that."
