Spurs are reportedly locked in talks with Liverpool in a move for Ryan Babel.
Spurs have been thwarted in their attempts to bring in a new striker so far and have turned to the out-of-favour Liverpool forward.
Roy Hodgson is thought to let Babel move on for the right price, though he has been rumoured to be being used as a make-weight in a move for West Ham’s Carlton Cole.
With Robbie Keane likely to seal yet another deadline day move, Spurs will need a fourth striker if they are to compete on four fronts this season.
Liverpool will however be keen on securing a replacement before they let the Dutch flyer go.
Babel will probably jump at an opportunity to escape a miserable time on Merseyside and will have plenty to prove in the Premier League.
