Tottenham Hotspur are looking to boost their strike-force with the addition of either Newcastle’s Andy Carroll or Athletico Madrid’s Sergio Aguero.
The big-spending Londoners are reported to have had a £38.5 million bid for the Argentine striker Aguero rejected last night.
Aguero is understood to have be allowed to leave the Spanish club providing an offer just shy of £50 million is made.
And the Champions League club is also continuing to monitor Newcastle’s burly striker Andy Carroll – who has impressed on the Magpies’ return to the Premier League with 11 goals this season.
It’s rumoured the north London club will have to stump up £30 million for Carroll with Newcastle hesitant about letting their star asset leave St. James Park.
Spurs may have to contend with an offer for Carroll from Liverpool, who face the prospect of losing Fernando Torres to a British record £50 million bid from Chelsea.
Spurs are looking to bolster their front line following the departure of Robbie Keane to West Ham on loan.
Boss Harry Redknapp was in Spain recently keeping a tab on former Man United man Diego Forlan. He is also thought to be interested in Seville’s Luis Fabiano and Alvaro Negredo and Guiseppi Rossi of Villareal.
