Tottenham could be set to add Yannick Djalo to their ranks, according to reports in the Portuguese press.

Harry Redknapp has endured a frustrating transfer window thus far, as he looks to find more attacking options before Spurs begin their first ever Champions League campaign.

Spurs have been linked with a long list of strikers during the summer; including the likes of Luis Suarez, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Craig Bellamy - but Djalo looks likely to be the first to make the move to White Hart Lane.

Djalo, 24, plys his trade with Sporting Lisbon and - despite his diminutive stature - has alerted several clubs across Europe with some impressive performances in the Champions League.

Although he does not possess a prolific goalscoring record, his energy and application appeal to Redknapp and reports suggest that a Spurs representative has flown to Lisbon to hammer out a deal.

Djalo's agent Lionel da Silva said: "He is a player who is wanted in England, and Tottenham looks like the most likely destination."

The Portugal B international is a product of the Sporting youth system, and has scored 17 goals in 74 first team appearances for the club.
