Leicester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson fears that Tottenham may price right-back Kyle Naughton out of their range.
Naughton, 22, made a big impact during an eight-month loan spell at the Walkers Stadium last season - and Eriksson is keen to sign the defender.
Eriksson told BBC Radio Leicester: "It's possible to take Kyle but he is extremely expensive.
"The club wants too much money for a defender but of course, he is a great football player. We'll see."
Naughton, who joined the Foxes in November, has made 36 appearances, scoring five goals.
