Tottenham Hotspur are on alert over the availability of Miroslav Klose, according to reports.
The German international striker is yet to agree terms on a new contract with Bayern Munich, and is available on a free transfer this summer after running down his current deal at the Allianz Arena.
Harry Redknapp has long been linked with a move for the former Werder Bremen forward, with the Spurs boss reportedly tracking the striker for a couple of years now.
The Metro claims Tottenham Hotspur made contract with Bayern in January, and could now look to tempt the player to White Hart Lane with a substantial contract offer.
Reports in Germany claim the major stumbling block between Klose and the Bundesliga giants is the length of contract, with the striker looking for a two-year deal while Bayern are only willing to offer one.
"Miroslav Klose is on a deal to expire this summer and I am virtually unable to predict if we are about to reach an agreement with him. [The problems in agreeing terms] are definitely about the duration of a new deal," chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Germany's Munchener Merkur newspaper.
Spurs striker Jermain Defoe admitted he's unhappy over a lack of playing time, and Redknapp is expected to make changes to attacking ranks this summer amidst uncertain futures for Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko.
Despite his advancing years, Klose could represent some solid business for Tottenham Hotspur and add some experience to the club's attacking line ahead of next season's probable tilt at the Europa League.
