Spurs are interested in poaching out-of-contract Blackpool winger Tom Ince after he rejected the approached of Internazionale, according to the Daily Express.
The 22-year-old will leave Blackpool when his contract expires at the end of the month and has been subject of interest from Italian giants Internazionale.
However the former Liverpool wideman has rejected Inter's advances in favour of remaining in the Premier League.
Ince told the Express: "After lengthy discussions with my family I have decided that my immediate future in the game lies in the Premier League.
"I am flattered to have received such strong interest from several big European clubs. But I believe at this early stage of my career I need to continue my football education in England.
"I would like to thank the clubs overseas for their interest and kindness. I still have ambitions to one day play in Europe."
Ince, son of former Liverpool and Inter Milan midfielder, Paul, spent the second-half of last season on loan at Crystal Palace.
Despite scoring his Eagles debut, Ince made just eight apperances - five starts - for Tony Pulis' side.
If Spurs do sign Ince, they will have to pay current club Blackpool compensation.
