Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign Paco Alcacer after a successful scouting mission of the Valencia striker last week.

The Sunday Mirror reports that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino plans to rival the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal for the Spain international's signature when the transfer window reopens in January.

Pochettino is believed to be unhappy with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor and wants to bring a new talisman to lead the line at White Hart Lane in the New Year.

Rival interest

Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have both previously been credited with an interest in a player that has a £15 million buy-out clause, and will now face stiffer competition if they want to secure Alcacer's signature.

However, both clubs strengthened that area of their respective squads, the Gunners signing Danny Welbeck from Manchester United while Chelsea recruited Diego Costa, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy.

Tottenham missed out on a striker during the summer transfer window and hope that the offer of regular first-team football will move them ahead of rival suitors at the turn of the year.

Valencia are hoping that Alcacer will stay and sign a new deal at the Mestalla, and now that they're owned by billionaire businessman Peter Lim stand more of a chance of reaching agreement with the 21-year-old over a new deal.
