Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly lining up a January swoop for Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder.

According to the Mirror, Mauricio Pochettino is not impressed with current forwards Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor and is looking to bring in the Ligue striker to add more attacking potency to the team.

Tottenham's current strikers have failed to impress the new manager as the White Hart Lane outfit struggle to break down teams this season.

Ben Yedder has been in impressive form for Toulouse in the past couple of seasons and has started this campaign in similar fashion by already netting six goals in appearances for the Ligue 1 club.

The French forward, who joined Toulouse from UJA Maccabi on a free transfer, could be available for a fee of around £5m, despite having a contract till 2017 with the club.

The 24-year-old centre-forward has impressed Spurs scouts and the Argentinean could be tempted to make a bid as soon as the January transfer window opens.

The north London club have also been linked to Dutch striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar, who currently plays for Bundesliga club Schalke.

The Netherlands international is on the final year of his contract and could be available for as little as £3m as the German club will be reluctant to lose him for free in the summer.

Meanwhile, Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is delighted that compatriot Nacer Chadli is finally showing his true potential for club and country.

The Spurs winger had a tough debut season at White Hart Lane and earlier in the month admitted that he had offers to leave the club, but turned them down as he wanted to be a success with Tottenham. He has done just that and is one of the form players under new manager Mauricio Pochettino.

"It's great that he's growing. He's a very good player and it's a shame he couldn't show what he is capable of last year but now we're seeing the real Nacer," Vertonghen said, as quoted on Spurs' official site.

"We already knew from his performances for Belgium what he was able to do so I'm pleased for him and the Club," the Belgian international added.
