Tottenham are reportedly in pole position to sign Espanyol striker Pablo Osvaldo.
According to The Mirror, the north London club face stiff competition from Atletico Madrid for the £14 million-rated Argentine, but they are 'winning the race' for his signature.
Osvaldo has been in fine form for Espanyol this season, netting 12 times in 23 La Liga appearances. The Barcelona-based club are now prepared to sell the 25-year-old in order to raise funds for some summer transfer activity of their own.
The former Fiorentina forward is said to have been identified by Harry Redknapp as a player with the potential to fire Spurs back to the Champions League.
Redknapp is known to be on the lookout for a proven goalscorer, with Spurs also reportedly courting Chelsea star Didier Drogba and Manchester United flop Diego Forlan.
However, the Spurs boss has been told by chairman Daniel Levy that he must trim his squad before significant investment can be made, while Roman Pavlyuchenko and Jermain Defoe have been tipped to leave White Hart Lane.
