Tottenham are targeting a loan move for Everton striker Louis Saha but only if they can offload Roman Pavlyuchenko, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

Spurs have been trying to sell the Russian throughout the January window after the striker fell down the pecking order at White Hart Lane.

However, Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is keen to reinforce his strike force should Pavlyuchenko leave and reports this morning suggest the club have identified Saha as a stop-gap replacement.

Saha has enjoyed a relatively injury-free campaign since September, making 18 appearances for the Toffees but he has only found the net once and, with Nikica Jelavic set to arrive, his long-term future at the club has been put in doubt.

Meanwhile, Tottenham have begun talks with Manchester City over a permanent move for on-loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor, the Daily Mail reports.

The 27-year-old has scored nine goals for Spurs since arriving in the summer and Redknapp has opened talks with City officials ahead of a move for the Togo international in the summer.

Earlier this week, Tottenham assistant manager Joe Jordan insists that the club is unlikely to bring in any new players on Tuesday but hinted that, as with anything in football, there was always the possibility that a deal could emerge as the day progresses.

"In the past, Tottenham have come in with a late purchase and there's always a possibility in football. At this moment there is nothing imminent. All of the players are here," Jordan told Sky Sports.

"There are people within the club that know what the thoughts of the manager are and they go on and do it. You concentrate on what job you are supposed to do. So, no, I don't think that (fixture congestion) has got anything to do with it.

"People coming into the transfer window know what they would like."
