The 29-year-old left Newcastle in January 2014 in order to return to his homeland with Paris Saint-Germain, but his spell in the French capital has been a difficult one.
Despite claiming two Ligue 1 titles and featuring the Champions League, Cabaye is far from being a frequent starter for the Parisians, who possess a talented squad put together with the millions of their Middle Eastern backers.
However, reports suggest that Spurs are the latest London-based outfit to switch their transfer crosshairs towards the Les Bleus star.
White Hart Lane chief Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be ready to rebuild his midfield this summer, with players such as Paulinho, Benjamin Stambouli, Etienne Capoue and Mousa Dembele all available at the right price.
Cabaye could be tempted by a move, with regular playing time likely to be a big factor in his chances of playing for France at EURO 2016.
