Tottenham have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Amr Zaki on loan.

According to the Daily Mail, Harry Redknapp is painfully aware of the need to bolster his attacking options following Spurs' 3-2 loss against Young Boys in their Champions League qualifier.

Zaki has supposedly been offered to Redknapp with a view to a permanent deal if a temporary spell at White Hart Lane proves to be successful.

The 27-year-old former Wigan striker started his Premier League career in sensational style; scoring five goals in his first six league outings during a season-long loan with the Latics.

However, in April 2009 Zaki suffered a severe falling-out with then Wigan boss Steve Bruce after the player failed to return to the club after international duty.

This incident led Bruce rejecting the chance sign the former Lokomotiv Moscow frontman, and he instead rejoined Zamalek in his native Egypt.

Zaki returned to England nine months later with Hull City, but he failed to make an impact as the Tigers were relegated from the top-flight.

The Daily Mail also reports that forward has been offered to Spurs' London rivals West Ham.
