Tottenham are reportedly keen on Liverpool target Guillaume Hoarau.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker has been on the radar of a number of Barclays Premier League teams for the last few seasons and has further confirmed his talents as a prolific goalscorer during his time in the French capital.
It would now appear that the France international may finally make his move to England and Spurs and Liverpool are reportedly lying in wait.
Sport.co.uk claimed in December that the 26-year-old was a target for Liverpool and now tribalfootball.com alleges that the Reds will have to battle with Spurs for his services in the summer.
Despite Liverpool spending big to land Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll in January, the Anfield club are expected to further enhance their striking department when the transfer window reopens in June.
Although Hoarau is perhaps a more direct option than other strikers reportedly on the Liverpool radar, the former Le Havre forward could prove to be an exciting acquisition for the Reds.
However, Liverpool are likely to have their work cut out to sign the French hotshot with Spurs desperate to bring in a striker in the summer.
Spurs tried in vain to sign a number of big-money targets in January - failing in attempts to land Giuseppe Rossi and Fernando Llorente - and are prepared to spend heavily to land a marquee signing.
"The chairman would have bought someone for £30million though, for sure. He wanted to bring someone in," said the Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp.
"There was no doubt that he wanted to do it. He wanted to get somebody in and if Daniel [Levy] and [Tottenham owner] Joe Lewis can find the right people they will have a go again."
