Harry Redknapp expects other teams to join the race for West Ham striker Craig Bellamy, with Manchester City thought to be among the interested parties.
Spurs had a bid turned down for Wales international Bellamy and it is understood that they anticipate City offering more than their own £6million valuation of the 29-year-old.
"I think there are teams interested in him," Redknapp said. "So we'll have to wait and see on that one."
Redknapp is in the market for a striker as he currently only has Darren Bent, Roman Pavlyuchenko and youngster Fraizer Campbell in his squad. Pavlyuchenko is also ineligible for the UEFA Cup this season.
"I'm only looking at one or two players," Redknapp added on Sky Sports News. "We're looking at strikers because you need four, what with the competitions we are in."
Redknapp used his programme notes ahead of the Barclays Premier League clash against Fulham to outline his transfer aims for January.
He wrote: "Strikers are so important to a team because they are more than likely going to be the players that will win you matches.
"However, I have said all along that if the players I want are not available then we will not do anything."
