Tottenham have reportedly made a late approach for Lyon striker Lisandro Lopez, with a view to bringing the Argentina international to White Hart Lane for the remainder of the season.

Spurs are short on goalscoring options, with Jermain Defoe currently the only senior forward available, and L'Equipe reports that Lopez could bolster this department before the transfer deadline.

Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly looking to recruit Lopez on loan to for the rest of the campaign, although the Tottenham manager has frequently insisted he is content with the amount of strikers already at his disposal.

"We are comfortable with the situation," Villas-Boas said after the weekend defeat to Leeds, when Spurs were without Defoe. "We are happy with the squad."

But Tottenham will be without Emmanuel Adebayor for a little longer after he helped Togo into the knockout stages of the Africa Cup of Nations, so Villas-Boas could be tempted into the transfer market on the final day of the window.

Lopez, 29, however is reportedly not the only striker under consideration by Tottenham, with Brazil international Leandro Damiao also a target on deadline day.

According to The Times, Spurs have launched a bid for the 23-year-old in the hope of signing him from Internacional before the window closes on Thursday.
