Tottenham want to bring Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri to White Hart Lane in January on a short-term deal, according to the Express.
The Swiss international - who has struggled for opportunities in the Bundesliga under Pep Guardiola of late - has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time, with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool also seemingly interested in the player's services.
However, despite European duo Juventus and Galatasaray also plotting a move for the attacking star, it appears that Spurs could land the winger in the January transfer window on a temporary deal.
United & Liverpool summer interest
Shaqiri, then, could be handed the opportunity to shine in the Premier League throughout the second half of the season, meaning he could eventually make a permanent move to England's elite division next summer.
Spurs, though, may face competition from Manchester United and Liverpool for the long-term signing of Shaqiri, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will complete a move to England in the winter market.
At just 23-years-old, it's not surprising that the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Co. are monitoring the Bayern ace. Without a doubt, he's won of the most talented wingers in world football, so could prove a great asset for one of the Premier League's elite sides.
Tottenham, as they look to improve under Mauricio Pochettino, could do with a top-class forward to aid their challenge to secure Champions League football this season. In truth, though, Liverpool could also do with adding to their squad in January, but it appears that them and Manchester United may now have to wait until the summer transfer window before making a permanent move for Shaqiri.
The trio of clubs, meanwhile, are all in action this weekend as they look to climb the Premier League table. Tottenham play host to Stoke City at White Hart Lane, whilst Manchester United take on Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back after their Champions League defeat last night as they host Chelsea at Anfield.
