Lisandro Lopez has admitted that he wants to leave Lyon in the summer, boosting Tottenham's hopes of landing the striker in the next transfer window.
Lopez has scored 12 goals in 32 appearances for the Ligue 1 side this season, but recent arguments with manager Remi Garde have led to him searching for another club.
Tottenham have long been connected with the hitman, as Andre Villas-Boas looks to beef up his attacking options next season. And now Lopez has confirmed he will be looking for another club when the season comes to an end.
"I don't think it is possible for me to continue here," he said, according to Metro.
"Before the end of the season I'm going to meet with the president and the coach and we'll see."
Tottenham will certainly be in the market for strikers in the summer, though their transfer wishlist will all depend on whether they qualify for the Champions League or not.
Spurs are currently fifth in the table, but have a game in hand over third-placed Arsenal. That game is against Chelsea, who are also fighting for top four, making for an exciting contest and a nerve-racking couple of weeks for Andre Villas-Boas as he prepares of the summer transfer window.
Lopez could certainly bring goals to the club, but at 30 years of age he is surely moving towards the latter stages of his career, meaning Tottenham might be able to negotiate a cut price deal for the Argentine.
French keeper Hugo Lloris admitted in January that the club were close to doing a deal for the former Porto man.
"Lisandro? It seems he almost joined Tottenham," he said. "He is a great player, charismatic and one who has given a lot to Lyon.
"He is a top player, who works hard for the team and can win matches. He is a player that deserves the best."
