Tottenham Hotspur's attacking problems could be solved with the signing of Lisandro Lopez, according to the Guardian.
The 27-year-old Lyon forward had been linked with a move to England last year in a deal estimated to be worth £14.5 million.
But now with Spurs' strikers far from firing on all cylinders this season Harry Redknapp will look to either Lopez, or Didier Drogba.
With Lyon still battling for qualification for the Champions League it is expected that Lopez will be available at a cut price, especially if Tottenham secure a Champions league spot of their own.
With the future of Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko uncertain, a signing of Lopez's calibre would be in keeping with Tottenham;s ambitions of fighting at the top end of the Premier League table and regularly contesting for Champions League qualification.
Liverpool were also touted as being interested in Lopez, before the sale of Torres, but with Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez now ably filling the forward positions at Anfield, Tottenham have lead the race for the forward.
