Tottenham are ready to make a move for Valencia attacking midfielder Jonas when the January transfer window opens, according to TalkSPORT.

The 28-year-old has been in fine form so far this season, and has claimed three goals and two assists so far to add to the 18 goals he bagged last term.

Spurs have been linked with a host of attacking players ahead of the winter window, with reports last week suggesting Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas will be handed a hefty budget to bolster his squad.

Willian, Loic Remy and Joao Moutinho have all been targets in the past, but according to TalkSPORT the Valencia attacker is the player currently catching the attention of the north London club.

Despite Jonas’ fine personal start to the new La Liga season, Los Che are struggling in 14th having only picked up eight points from their first seven games.

Villas-Boas was believed to be close to becoming the Valencia manager over the summer before he opted for Spurs, with TalkSPORT claiming he has a good relationship with Valencia sporting director Braulio Vazquez, something which could help facilitate a switch to White Hart Lane.

Spurs have previously made a move for Jonas’ Valencia team-mate Robert Soldado, who claims to have turned down a move to Spurs before the summer transfer window snapped shut.
