Tottenham are reportedly set to test Everton's resolve over midfielder Steven Pienaar and use Niko Kranjcar as bait in a part-exchange deal.
The future of South Africa international Pienaar remains up in the air as he is out of contract at the end of the season, and is widely expected to leave in the new year with a host of clubs keen on the South African international.
Harry Redknapp is a known admirer and Spurs are thought to be heading the race for his signature with former Portsmouth man Kranjcar reportedly a potential player to be used in a part-exchange deal.
Kranjcar has only managed to start one Premier League game this season and has struggled to win a regular first-team place at White Hart Lane this season.
When asked about his future, Pienaar said: "I am still focused on staying at Everton. The season is not over yet, anything can happen."
"I can't comment on that (Tottenham speculation), I don't know what is going on."
