Tottenham are reportedly showing an interest in Marseille striker Andre Pierre Gignac.

The France international has failed to find the net in 11 outings this season, and has frequently been linked with a move away from the Stade Velodrome.

According to The Sun, Didier Deschamps is prepared to let Gignac leave leave on loan in January and Spurs are one of the clubs monitoring the 25-year-old.

Harry Redknapp currently has Jermain Defoe, Emmanuel Adebayor and Roman Pavlyuchenko in his goalscoring department, but the latter is likely to leave White Hart Lane.

Spurs, meanwhile, remain keen to keep Adebayor at the club on a permanent deal, but his gargantuan wages are expected to see him return to Manchester City at the end of the season.

Thus, Redknapp is perusing the market for potential replacements for the Togolese forward, and Gignac could be a possible successor.

However, the Spurs boss has already stated that, at this present time, he has no desire to reinforce his squad.

Spurs have also been linked with moves for Chelsea pair Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba.
