Tottenham have been linked with a swoop for Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella, who also has offers from Russia.
The 29-year-old Neapolitan has fallen down the pecking order in Turin despite a strong goals to games ratio this season.
According to TalkSport, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is a big admirer of Quagliarella and is pushing to sign him either in January or next summer.
Spurs face competition from several Russian clubs, including Zenit, Spartak Moscow and CSKA Moscow.
