SPURS have reportedly been in contact with Kalidou Koulibaly's agent.
According to Corriere del Mezzogiorno's Campania edition, Chelsea and Tottenham have both been in talks.
The Senegalese defender, 28, was linked to a number of Europe's biggest clubs in the summer.
But none of them were able to lure away from Napoli – who he has been since he joined from Genk in 2014.
FOR many clubs, the 2010s will be a decade to remember.
Manchester City and Leicester both won their first-ever Premier League titles, with the Etihad side going on to win three more.
These incredible stats show each team's toughest opponent – with Spurs struggling the most against Man City.
ALAN PARDEW wants to make Ravel Morrison his first signing at ADO Den Haag, according to reports.
The 26-year-old joined Sheffield United on a one-year contract last summer but has only featured three times, with just one of those coming in the Premier League.
And Sky Sports claim Pardew has made the midfielder his No1 target at the Dutch club.
The former West Ham boss has already admitted that he will be targeting players from the UK to bolster his side’s survival hopes.
He said: “The club is in a bad position. The team look like they need help and confidence in what they're doing.
“I think additional players would help them, and of course I'll look at the British market because it's a market I know well.
“I've had a lot of lovely messages and good feeling from within the game. I have a lot of friends and I'm going to lean on them to hopefully get one or two players that can help this club.”
TOTTENHAM have opened negotiations with Atletico Madrid for the signing of Thomas Lemar, according to reports.
Once a wonderkid with Monaco, the attacking midfielder's career has stalled in the Spanish capital and he has made just nine La Liga starts this season.
But Lemar's talent is not in doubt and Spurs are leading the race for his signature according to Foot Mercato, with Arsenal also maintaining an interest.
However the sticking point is Atleti's asking price, with Diego Simeone's men keen to recoup the £61m they spent on him the summer.
The valuation is currently out of the price range of Spurs, who would prefer an initial loan deal.
MANCHESTER UNITED’S hopes of signing Christian Eriksen have suffered a blow after Inter Milan opened talks with the Tottenham star.
The Danish international is out of contract in June with the North London club and is now free to discuss terms with teams overseas.
And Italian football journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims Inter’s ‘directors have begun contacts with the agents’ of the attacker.
His report says the Nerazzurri originally planned to bring Eriksen to Serie A in the summer.
Now they have been holding talks in London over a potential transfer this month.
Spurs would rather offload the 27-year-old, who handed in a transfer request last summer, now rather than risk losing him for nothing.
And today’s report states they would be willing to do business with Inter for around £17m.
The San Siro outfit are extremely keen on the ex-Ajax playmaker, however it is believed they are firstly attempting to sign Arturo Vidal from Barcelona before the winter window closes.
