Tottenham are reportedly tracking Marseille winger Florian Thauvin, and could make a bid for him in the coming months.

According to French newspaper Le10 Sport, Mauricio Pochettino has identified the Frenchman as the perfect candidate to boost his offensive department, which has struggled for goals this season.

Spurs are currently in seventh place and are still harbouring hopes of finishing in the top four, but their recent performances, a draw against Burnley and a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa, have highlighted their major problem, which is finding the back of the net on a consistent basis.

The north London club have relied too much upon young Harry Kane, who has had to shoulder most of the goal scoring burden, with the likes Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado woefully out of form.

This has prompted the manager to find suitable replacements ahead of next season and he has identified Thauvin as one of the targets for the summer.

The French U21 international, who joined Marseille in 2013, has already rejected a move to Inter Milan in the past, but could be tempted if Tottenham came in with a better offer for both the club and the player.

"It is a subject of conservation that I had with the president early in the season. It's been a year since I arrived in Marseille. There was no way for me to leave the club. We took the decision to refuse the offer from Inter," Thauvin said, as quoted on Le10 Sport.

Apart from Thauvin, Spurs are also tracking André Ayew and André-Pierre Gignac, both of whom also play for Marseille. The duo are out of contract in the summer and have refused to pen extensions, which allows them to sign a pre-contract agreements with any club outside of France.
