Tottenham are reported to be lining up a move for Croatian wide-man Danijel Pranjic.
The 26-year-old is currently plying his trade for Dutch side Heerenveen, where has he has enjoyed a very good season with six goals to date.
Spurs have been looking for left-sided options for months, but they have never solved the problem which means that Steed Malbranque has to full in on that flank.
Pranjic could be the man Juande Ramos turns to after his scouting team brought back glowing reports about the Croat - which included a very display against England at Wembley in the Euro 2008 qualifier back in November.
Pranjic has nine caps to his name but has only recently become a regular under Slaven Bilic - who looks set to use him a wing-back in order to utilise his attacking abilities from a deep lying position.
A White Hart Lane delegation travelled to the recent Croatia- Scotland clash as Ramos was keen to see the player in a British-style match and Pranjic impressed as he went up against current Spurs ace Alan Hutton.
Now Croatian media reports claim Spurs have made contact with Heerenveen about concluding a deal for the end of the season.
However, with Pranjic ready to feature at the Euro 2008 finals, the Frisian club are looking to keep him until later in the summer when his stock could very well rise if he performs well in Austria & Switzerland.
But Ramos is unlikely to be deterred in his hunt and whilst he considers other options, if Pranjic is the man he wants then Spurs would appear firm favourites to secure his signature.
Weekend reports also saw Spurs linked with a renewed interest in Middlesbrough's Adam Johnson.
Tottenham failed to land Stewart Downing from Boro and have previously also tried to get Johnson.
But with Downing signing a new deal on Teesside, Spurs could try again for his understudy - whose chances at The Riverside are severely hampered by the presence of the England star.
