Tottenham could be about to make a late move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, according to reports.

The Mexican international is said to have grown tired of playing second fiddle to the likes of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, and is seeking a way out of Old Trafford.

ITV cite ESPN journalist Diego Cora as a source and say Tottenham have made a bid for the Manchester United striker.

However getting the deal done before the close of the window is not going to be easy, with Monaco and Atletico Madrid also reportedly interested.

Manchester United are unlikely to let the striker leave to join a top four rival in the middle of the season - and David Moyes has also previously insisted he is going nowhere.

Tottenham were linked with Hernandez in the summer - but are now reportedly looking at making a move again with Jermain Defoe off to Toronto in February.

His departure has left Spurs with just two senior strikers - Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.

Tottenham go up against Manchester City on Wednesday, while Manchester United go head to head with Cardiff City tonight.
