Spurs have been linked with a move for Nice striker Alassane Plea.
He scored 21 times in 48 games in Ligue 1 last season and as a result, speculation about him leaving France has only intensified.
And now according to The Sun, Plea is seen as the man to provide Harry Kane with stiff competition for next season.
The article goes on to say Tottenham have tabled an opening bid of £23 million and despite trying to lure striker Anthony Martial away from Manchester United, it is understood Plea is the man they want.
He has Ben capped by France all the way up from Under-18 to Under-21 levels, and he narrowly missed out on a place in Didier Deschamps World Cup squad this summer
It goes on to say Borussia Monchengladbach have already made a serious offer for Plea, but Spurs hope to steal a march on the Bundesliga side by offering him Champions League football.
