Tottenham are considering a £30m bid for in-form Fiorentina striker Giuseppe Rossi, reports the Sunday People.
Andre Villas-Boas reportedly has just a month to save his job at White Hart Lane but technical director Franco Baldini is still on the hunt for new additions.
In an attempt to cure their problems up front, Baldini is tracking Fiorentina's Rossi with a £30m bid being considered by Daniel Levy.
The Tottenham chairman is happy to approve another big money spending spree despite seeing a poor return on the £110m investment in the summer.
The former Manchester United striker has been on fire for the Viola this season, scoring 11 goals in just 13 stars.
With Roberto Soldado failing to recreate his Valencia form at White Hart Lane and Emmanuel Adebayor expected to depart presently, Rossi is seen as the perfect replacement and will be made the new number nine should they convince him to move to north London.
It will be the second time Tottenham have tried to sign the American-born Italian, after they originally attempted to bring him to the club when he was at Vilarreal.
Rossi's contract, which runs until 2017, allows him to leave if a bid of £30m is made, but Spurs will attempt to get him for less.
Having suffered two serious knee injuries during his career, Tottenham know paying full whack for the 26-year-old may be a too big of risk.
