Spurs have sent representatives to a Milan hotel where they are ironing out a deal for Sassuolo striker Simone Zaza, according to reports in Italy.

Any transfer for the 23 year-old will need to be rubber stamped by Serie A giants Juventus, who retained 50% of Zaza's economic rights after selling him to Sassuolo in 2013.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus have the right to bring Zaza back to the club for £11m, but will not stand in Tottenham's way if the Premier League side table a better offer.

Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bolster his forward line this month and take some of the pressure of youngster Harry Kane.
