Tottenham are plotting a shock move for free agent Samuel Eto’o, according to reports from The Sun.

The Cameroonian striker was released by Chelsea earlier this summer after just one season at Stamford Bridge, and is currently without a club.

Despite serious interest from North America and Asia, the 33-year-old is thought to be keen to remain in London, which has alerted Spurs.

West Ham looked to be leading the way for the veteran, but after discussions between the club and the player’s agent it became apparent that Eto’o’s £100,000-per-week+ wages were too steep for the Hammers.

However the Lilywhites may have more of a budget to dedicate towards the experienced goal-getter, with Pochettino desperate to add proven quality to his attacking ranks.

The Argentine has Emmanuel Adebayor, Harry Kane and £26m flop Roberto Soldado to choose from, but none of the trio have convinced in recent times.

Eto’o is wanted by teams in the MLS as well as Middle Eastern and Chinese outfits, all of whom can offer lucrative contracts for his services.
