The Portuguese coach is willing to spend up to £7m on the talented Swede, who joined the Cottagers from Liverpool in 2012 as part of a deal for Paul Konchesky.
AVB may also offer Tom Huddlestone in exchange to sweeten any deal, with the west London club thought to be keen on the imposing midfielder.
The White Hart Lane outfit are believed to have made attacking reinforcements their main priority this term, with injuries to the likes of Aaron Lennon exposing a lack of depth last season.
Kacaniklic is believed to meet AVB’s list of requirements, and the former Chelsea boss is confident that he can slot seamlessly into his squad.
The 21-year-old really announced himself in the Premier League this season, turning in a number of impressive displays to help Fulham secure a solid midtable finish.
Despite his young age, Kacaniklic has already made nine senior appearances for Sweden, and is regarded as on of the nation’s rising talents.
He was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Liverpool, but has blossomed after being given a chance of regular first-team football under Martin Jol.
Tottenham fans, can Alexander Kacaniklic add quality to your squad? Or would you rather see more experienced players coming in?
