Tottenham are reportedly interested in making a loan bid in the ongoing transfer window for Barcelona winger Isaac Cuenca till the end of the season, according to the Metro.

The report states that Cuenca has been informed that he is free to join another club and Spurs are interested in making a short-term move for the winger. The Spanish club are willing to shell out half of the player's wages in order enhance Cuenca's opportunities to play first team football this season.

The 22-year-old made his first team debut for Barcelona in the 2011/12 season after being promoted from Barcelona B by the former manager Pep Guardiola making 16 appearances in La Liga. The following season, Cuenca spent most of the campaign on the treatment table due to injuries to his knee.

The winger went out on a loan spell to Ajax last January, but his time in the Eredivise ended prematurely due to another knee injury. Cuenca returned to training last October after undergoing surgery to his knee in June and is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Spanish club this season.

The north London club have already announced the departure of Jermain Defoe to FC Toronto on 28 February in the ongoing transfer window.

Spurs spent an enormous amount of over £100m in signing seven players last summer who have thus far failed to make significant impact in the squad, most notably, the club's record signing Erik Lamela.

The 21-year-old made a move from AS Roma for a club-record transfer of £30m and has thus far failed to impress at White Hart Lane managing only one assist in nine league appearances without scoring a single goal. Tim Sherwood's side have the worst goal scoring record among the first eight teams in the table with only 26 goals in the current campaign.

Meanwhile, Spurs enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 victory at home against Crystal Palace in the weekend Premier League fixture on Saturday. The visitors missed penalty early in the first half as Sherwood's team responded with Defoe and Christian Eriksen smashing the ball past goalkeeper Julian Speroni in the second half.

The north London side sit fifth in the league table with 40 points after 21 games and could remain there, depending on the results of Sunday's league fixtures.
