Reported Tottenham target Ruud van Nistelrooy is considering his future as he prepares to leave Hamburg.
The Dutch striker only signed an 18-month contract after swapping the Santiago Bernabeu for the Imtech Arena last year and is banking on a move away from Germany to revitalise his career.
According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham are leading a whole host of clubs in the pursuit of the 34-year-old as Harry Redknapp looks to bring a proven goalscorer to White Hart Lane.
Not many players within the last decade have garnered a better goalscoring pedigree than Van Nistelrooy, who Spurs allegedly attempted to sign in January.
The former Manchester United hotshot has already put Spurs on red alert by claiming that a move back to England would be something that appeals to him.
"Spain would be great, but in the Premier League I have many good contacts," Van Nistelrooy told German newspaper Bild.
"I will be a free agent this summer, with concrete offers.
"I will sit down with the proposals and make a decision with my wife."
Tottenham have also been linked with United flop Diego Forlan and Athletic Bilbao target-man Fernando Llorente in their attempts to sign a world-class forward.
