Tottenham boss Martin Jol has ruled out a bid for Chelsea winger Arjen Robben should he become available.
Jol rates his fellow Dutchman highly but told Radio Five Live's Sportsweek that the 21-year-old was out of reach.
"Five months ago I said Robben was the best after Johann Cruyff but that doesn't mean we'd go for him," he said.
"If he leaves I think he'd go somewhere like Real Madrid or Milan. Of course I'd like a player like him but it's not on, it's impossible."
Robben made a startling impact after joining Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven for £12m in summer 2004 but this season he has been dogged by injury and questions over his attitude.
Jol also ruled out a move for Roy Keane following his exit from Manchester United, saying midfield was one of the area where his team had strength in depth.
But he said he may well try to bolster his squad in other areas when the transfer window re-opens in January.
"If you see us play there's always one or two problems, we're not perfect," he said.
"If you see Chelsea they're probably 100% but we're not so we always look to strengthen, but we can be pretty satisfied with our team.
"We're better than ever but we're not the finished article, we always look to do something.
"We might want to do something in January, we'll have to wait and see."
