Tottenham will make a move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez in the January transfer window if they can sell outcast Emmanuel Adebayor, reports The Telegraph.

Hernandez, who has struggled to gain a regular role in David Moyes' side so far this season, has been a long term target for the White Hart Lane outfit.

And, with Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas desperate to move Adebayor on, Hernandez could act as the ideal replacement for the outcast.

However, Adebayor's reported £175,000-a-week wages could act as a stumbling block in his potential departure from White Hart Lane.

The Spurs boss will be hoping to add Hernandez to his side in order to improve his strike force in north London. Roberto Soldado has struggled early on in this Premier League campaign, with Jermain Defoe the main back-up forward. 

Spurs could also face competition for the forward from Premier League leaders Arsenal as Arsene Wenger is currently monitoring Hernandez's situation at Old Trafford.
