Harry Redknapp is in the hunt for a new striker is a known admirer of the Fulham hitman.
It is thought Martin Jol would be reluctant to sell his top marksman without having a replacement lined up and Redknapp thinks throwing Crouch into the mix could make the deal a possibility.
Both players are 30-years-old and members of the England squad although Crouch has significantly more caps and experience than Zamora.
However Spurs boss Redknapp see’s the Fulham hitman as a more potent goal scoring threat than Crouch who, despite scoring crucial Champions League goals, managed only four strikes in the league last year.
If the move were to go through it would cap a remarkable turnaround for Zamora who has revitalised his career at Craven Cottage.
He originally signed for Spurs at the start of the 2003/04 season but failed to score in his 16 games before being sold to West Ham and then to Fulham.
His performances for the Cottagers catapulted him into the England squad last year and now Redknapp is prepared to bring him back to Tottenham.
