Cagliari midfielder Radja Nainggolan is a target for Napoli, Roma and Inter, but now Tottenham have joined the race.
The Belgian international has long been hot property in Serie A and beyond, as in recent months he has been linked with numerous sides.
This summer Inter, Napoli and Roma have stepped forward with greater pressure on the Sardinian club.
However, reports are emerging in Italy that Tottenham have joined the race, particularly with new technical director Franco Baldini.
He had been negotiating with Cagliari on behalf of Roma before resigning to take the job at White Hart Lane.
Baldini will therefore pick up where he left off by trying to sign Nainggolan.
