Tottenham are reportedly weighing up a move for Bulgarian goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov who had a brief spell at Liverpool reports the Daily Mirror.

The 23-year-old currently plays for Dutch side FC Twente, where he is building a strong reputation in the Eredivisie - causing a number of clubs across Europe to track his development.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is on the lookout for a new keeper in January after Heurelho Gomes made it clear he wants to leave White Hart Lane having lost his place in the side to summer signing Brad Friedel.

The Brazilian featured in Tottenham's UEFA Europa League win over Rubin Kazan last Thursday, but his first-team opportunities have been limited - with Carlo Cudicini having been favoured as back-up on the Spurs bench.

Mihaylov spent some time in England with Liverpool, only for work-permit complications to ruin his potential move to the Reds, meaning he was forced to leave Anfield in 2010.

Kenny Dalglish has since recruited Alexander Doni to provide back-up for Liverpool's No.1 stopper Pepe Reina - but Mihaylov could still return to the Barclays Premier League if Tottenham step up their interest at the turn of the year.
