Tottenham have reportedly made an initial move to sign Carlos Tevez from Manchester City during the January transfer window.

Tevez is desperate to leave the Etihad Stadium after a series of clashes with Roberto Mancini, and the City manager is prepared to let his Argentine striker go.

The 27-year-old has not featured for City since late September and was fined substantially by the club after refusing to warm-up when requested against Bayern Munich.

AC Milan are reported to be trying to thrash out a deal for Tevez but now, according to The Sun, Spurs have made enquiries regarding a proposed £20 million move.

Should Spurs manage to bring Tevez to White Hart Lane, it would certainly be a significant coup for Harry Redknapp as his side look to challenge for the title.

However, Spurs may struggle to convince City to allow Tevez to move to north London, with the former considered by the latter as rivals for the Barclays Premier League crown.

Spurs would also need to smash their wage barrier in order to accommodate Tevez, who currently takes home over £200,000-per-week.
