Tottenham were keen to add at least one more signing to their list of recruits following a £110 million summer spending splurge.
Sources claimed that Spurs were interested in purchasing Brazilian forward Hulk on a season-long loan deal, but were put off the deal after Russian club Zenit demanded £10 million as a loan fee.
Reports also indicated that Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez could have been on his way to White Hart Lane, after Spurs lodged a £7 million bid a few days ago. United rejected the offer and said they rated him at double what Tottenham were willing to pay.
After potentially missing out on Hulk, they may come in for a second bid for the Mexican international.
Manchester United did tie up a deal for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini - a signing that could limit Hernandez's playing time even further, with the Belgian international more than capable of playing further up the field if required.
