Tottenham are said to be at the front of the queue for the services of Gent striker Laurent Depoitre, but face a battle to land him.
Spurs are still on the lookout for a striker to play alongside Harry Kane up front and appear to have cooled their interest in Saido Berahino of West Brom.
They have now been linked with Depoitre, who is valued at around the Â£12m mark.
Spurs had scouts watching the 27-year-old in action last week although they were not alone as seven Premier League clubs were also represented.
Depoitre, who has netted 13 goals so far this term, has just 16 months left on his present deal.
