Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be in line to make a rejuvenated attempt to prise Scott Parker away from West Ham United before the transfer window is closed for business.
Despite acquiring the services of talented Brazilian youngster Sandro from Internacional, the necessary squad strengthening in preparation for the Champions League is thought to have seen the gaffer cast an eye on the former Newcastle United man.
The Hammers have already rejected an offer of £7 million in the past, but The Guardian reports that Spurs are willing to return with an improved deadline day bid to sign the 29-year-old midfielder.
It is thought that the ex-Chelsea player would be willing to make a move across London to ply his trade at White Hart Lane instead of remaining at Upton Park.
However, West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has thus far remained immovable in his stance that the Hammers' prised asset is not for sale.
Tottenham are also reported to have cast an eye on Real Madrid outcast Lassana Diarra and Inter's Sulley Muntari.
