Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing former Birmingham City striker Christian Benitez - and are prepared to pay £9m.

The 27-year old has been in fine form for current team Club America, who play in the Primera Division in Mexico. Benitez has won the top-goalscorer award in the Mexican League for the past three seasons, with the striker Benitez having scored 52 goals in 79 appearances.

Spurs have been looking for additional striking power after the sub-standard form shown by their regular strikers Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Tottenham have also been linked with Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, but Villa are looking to do everything to keep hold of their prized asset.

In an interview with The Sun, Club America's president Ricardo Pelaez has said the club won't stand in Benitez's way if Spurs come in with a good enough offer.

"There could be a good offer for Christian from Tottenham," Pelaez said. "I've spoken with him and he wants to return to Europe. We won't clip his wings if we get an offer that suits us." 

And Pelaez made no attempts to disguise the fact that Benitez has already been the subject of bids from other European clubs.

"Of course there are bids for him, he has been the league's top scorer three times after all," Pelaez continued. "He is a great guy and magnificent player. He is under contract but we'll look to see what is the best option."
