Sky Sports News understands Tottenham are hoping to beat West Ham to the signing of Eidur Gudjohnsen.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp admitted on Tuesday night that he was interested in luring Gudjohnsen back to England from Monaco, but felt West Ham were favourites to land the former Chelsea star.
Gudjohnsen is thought to be keen on a move back to the Premier League after failing to settle in France and now Spurs and West Ham are ready to battle it out for his services.
The Icelandic international is believed to have underwent a medical at West Ham as Gianfranco Zola looks to be reunited with his former Chelsea team-mate.
However, Spurs have refused to give up on their pursuit of Gudjohnsen and are now believed to be holding talks with the player over a possible switch to White Hart Lane.
It seems Gudjohnsen will have to make a decision which London club he would prefer to join.
