Reports in Italy are signalling that Spurs are to step up their bid to land Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from AC Milan.
Huntelaar has failed to become a hit with the Rossoneri this year after his big money move from Real Madrid and Spurs will aim to land the Dutchman once they have offloaded Roman Pavlyuchenko.
Spurs tried to buy Huntelaar from Madrid in the summer, but the Dutchman plumped for AC Milan instead, as doubts persisted if Spurs could afford his wages.
Spurs are willing to compensate the full Â£15 million that Milan shelled out in the summer in order to get their man.
It has also been mooted that Gareth Bale could be used as bait, with the Welshman having been looked at previously by the Italian giants.
