But according to The Telegraph, Spurs have identified Antoine Griezmann as the man they want to fill the gap left by Bale.
However, the battle to land Griezmann could prove to be a long and bloody one with Monaco interested in the French international as well as Chelsea.
It is understood that Tottenham have already made one bid for Griezmann but it was rejected with Real Sociedad refusing to sell unless a £25 million buy-out clause is activated.
