Magpies boss Rafa Benitez will be desperate to add an established striker to his squad during the January transfer window, as he looks to add more potency to Newcastle's limp attack.
The Toon have scored just 13 goals in 14 Premier League outings this season, and Benitez is clearly unhappy with the options that he currently has available to him.
One potential option for him could be Spurs ace Fernando Llorente, who has endured a miserable start to life in north London, having failed to score in 16 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino's side so far.
The 32-year-old still has a lot to offer at the highest level, however, and the attributes that he possesses perfectly fit the criteria for what Benitez is looking to add to his squad in January.
He is strong and powerful in the air, fantastic at linking up play between defence and attack, and has a wealth of experience in playing at the peak of the European game.
Llorente would be the ideal strike partner for Dwight Gayle, and could help bring the best out of the 27-year-old hitman.
The former Juventus and Athletic Bilbao hitman would also surely benefit from more regular game-time at St James' Park, having made just three starts for Tottenham this season.
Tottenham Hotspur's Fernando Llorente in action
Whether Pochettino will be prepared to give up on Llorente just four months after signing him from Swansea City is debatable though.
There will be only one way to find out as far as the Magpies are concerned, however, and if they offered Spurs somewhere in the region of what they paid for him in August, the Londoners could very well be tempted into selling.
