Spurs are set for a big transfer window in the coming months, with chairman Daniel Levy willing to spend to secure a top class forward.
Welbeck has emerged as the latest target, with the London club keen to offer him more regular football.
The England international has played frequently for the Red Devils this term, but is not viewed as a key striker at Old Trafford, with both Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie ahead of him in David Moyes’ pecking order.
United are set to make wholesale changes to their squad, with attacking talent on the agenda.
This could force Welbeck even further from a starting berth, which might allow Spurs to snatch him away.
The 23-year-old is also entering the final two years of his deal, so the Premier League champions may be tempted by a big offer.
Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke are also on Tottenham’s radar, but with the former keen on Champions League football and the latter out of action with a serious injury deals may be unworkable.
