Jose Mourinho appears set to raid former club Porto to find a temporary solution to Spurs striking issues.
With Harry Kane out injured, Spurs are scouring Europe for a new striker.
And Porto forward Ze Luis has emerged as an option.
Sources in Portugal suggest a loan deal with an option to buy could see the 28 year-old arrive in North London.
Ze Luis, who joined Porto from Spartak Moscow last summer, has scored eight goals in 18 games this season so far.
A Cape Verde international, he will need a work permit.
