Spurs are eyeing a potential move for Benfica star Nicolas Gaitan, according to sources cited by Portuguese newspaper A Bola.
25-year-old Gaitan, who joined the Primeira Liga title hopefuls from Boca Juniors in May 2010, is a pivotal member of the first-team setup at Estádio da Luz and has impressed over the last few campaigns with his exciting attacking displays.
Inevitably, such consistent form has seen the Argentine international linked with a host of rival European sides, with Premier League champions Manchester United frequently named as a potential suitor during iconic former manager Sir Alex Ferguson's time at Old Trafford.
However, it looks as if it is not United but Andre Villas-Boas' Spurs who are now most keen to bring the player to England.
Citing unnamed sources, A Bola claim that Spurs are re-igniting their own interest in the gifted playmaker and that the club could be poised to move into action when the transfer window re-opens for business in January.
With a plethora of midfielders already at his disposal, Villas-Boas' reported in Gaitan could lead to increasing speculation over the immediate future of several members of his current squad.
