The talented 20-year-old attacking midfielder currently plays his football in Germany with Hamburg and Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas made a personal check on the player two weeks ago.
However, Tottenham are not the only interested club as both Chelsea and United are keen to do a deal in the summer, while Liverpool and Arsenal have also shown an interest.
Hamburg face a battle to keep hold of the player and will demand at least £10million if they are to sell, which would not be a problem for Europe’s big spenders.
United and Chelsea have had scouts watch the player, who has been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo, and Tottenham will have to fight off their interest if they wish to secure his signature.
