Tottenham media round-up: Club confident of landing one of Hernandez or Berahino

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Tottenham Hotspur this Monday evening.

A lot of the news surrounding Tottenham this evening seems to be about their pursuit of a new striker. 

The London Evening Standard is reporting that they could land a striker from one Premier League club, and that they are confident of signing one of Javier Hernandez or Saido Berahino.

The Standard reports that talks with West Bromwich Albion over a possible transfer of Berahino, with the Baggies wanting in excess of £20 million of their main forward. Spurs are said to be prepared to increase their offer after trying to strike a £15 million deal.

They are, however, increasingly optimistic of landing Hernandez from Manchester United as he has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford - including spending last season on loan at Real Madrid - in a £12 million deal.

The Standard reports Spurs are actively trying to offload Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado. Adebayor is wanted by Aston Villa but that move looks increasingly unlikely to happen, and he is prepared to run down the final year of his contract according to the report. 

Soldado is reportedly attracting interest from Spain but the stumbling block appears to be a price that benefits everybody, as Tottenham will no doubt try to recoup some of the £26 million spent to acquire the Spaniard from Valencia two years ago.

Sky Sports are the latest outlet to publish that Tottenham are pursuing a deal for Lyon striker Clinton N'Jie, who are citing a source within the Ligue 1 club. N'Jie didn't appear for the side in their 0-0 draw with Lorient.
