Now he wants to bring in more attacking reinforcements ahead of tonight’s transfer deadline.

They were linked with a move for Welsh winger from Leeds United, James.

However, the 24-year-old former Manchester United ace is now closing in on a move to Fulham.

The Cottagers plunged after Justin Kluivert’s transfer from Roma collapsed over a work permit.

Now sky sports claim the Tottenham chief executive and Conte “met to discuss their other options in the market” earlier today.

Portuguese international Martins, 27, “fits the profile” of the type of player he is looking for.

And the report also adds that the former Sporting Lisbon and Atletico Madrid striker is ‘eager’ to come to the Premier League.

The ace, who was linked with Arsenal several years ago, is comfortable playing on the left or right wing.

Meanwhile, there has been plenty of late interest from clubs looking to get Lucas Moura off Spurs’ books.

But they have no desire to let him go on loan and are only interested in a permanent sale.

Bryan Gil is still eagerly waiting for Spurs to bring in a replacement.

This would then allow him to join Valencia on loan.
