Spurs have been linked with a loan move for Real Madrid defender Éder Militão, with the option of a permanent switch to North London.
However, they face stiff competition from a clutch of Italian clubs, including Roma, Inter and AC Milan.
The 22-year old Brazilian was bought from Porto by the Spanish champions for a fee of €50 million (£45 million) in 2019, but he has barely featured this season, playing just 134 minutes of league football, and manager Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that he is surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu.
Militão has been capped eight times by Brazil, making his debut in 2018in a friendly with El Salvador that took place in the United States.
He began his career with Sao Paolo before joining Porto in 2018, and Jose Mourinho is said to have tracked his progress ever since his move to the Primeira Liga.
