German international Miroslav Klose is on the brink of leaving Bayern Munich with a host of European clubs queueing up for his signature.
The 32-year-old is out of contract in the summer and is unwilling to take a pay cut to stay at Munich.
Chasing Klose are Tottenham, a club no stranger to recruiting German strikers after the two spells spent by Jurgen Klinsmann at the club in the 90s, and European giants Juventus and Benfica.
All are said to have already offered a contract to Klose, with Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim, two other interested parties, unable to do the same until the end of the season, leaving the aforementioned trio as the frontrunners for his signature.
Klose is the second highest ever goalscorer in World Cup finals history and is one of a select band of players to have scored at least 50 goals for their country.
Tottenham are expected to re-jig their forwards this summer with Roman Pavlyuchenko and Robbie Keane expected to leave the club as Harry Redknapp looks to brink in some much needed experience to help them keep in touch with the Barclays Premier League elite.
The German international in the latest in a long line of forwards to be linked with Tottenham, with the likes of Diego Forlan, Javier Pastore and Klaas Jan Huntelaar all interesting the North Londoners.
