Tottenham are apparently in talks with Real Madrid for a possible loan deal to land Spanish U21 striker Alvaro Morata, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 21-year-old striker has scored two goals in 11 appearances for the Galacticos this season, but has been instrumental in Real Madrid's build-up play.
The starlet is mainly used when Carlo Ancelotti chooses to rest Karim Benzema.
Experts hailed Morata’s performances for Spain in U21 UEFA European Championship and is now slowly finding his feet in the limited opportunities in the senior squad of Real Madrid.
But the Santiago Bernabeu outfit will only allow him to move if they are able to secure the signature of a striker in January - with Robert Lewandowski, Luis Suarez and Radamel Falcao topping their wishlist.
Reports suggest Morata's loan move to London would have nothing to do with Gareth Bale's summer move from White Hart Lane to Real Madrid.
Tottenham duo Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor have both been linked with moves away from north London.
Defoe in attracting interest from MLS side Toronto while Premier League side West Ham and Sunderland are keeping tabs on the striker's situation.
Adebayor was linked for a move to Besiktas in the summer, but it remains to be seen if the north London club can find a buyer this time around due to the striker’s indifferent form.
Spurs have met Morata’s representatives recently to convince them that the striker would be given regular game-time at White Hart Lane, which Real Madrid cannot guarantee.
Morata has made 23 appearances for Real Madrid, scoring four goals since 2011, but it is all down to Ancelotti as to whether he decides to let the dynamic youngster move for a six-month loan spell - which would surely help his development as a player.
