White Hart Lane outfit must act quickly to avoid losing out on hugely talented attacker.
Eidur Gudjohnsen is poised to join Fulham unless Tottenham intervene either to extend his loan deal or sign him permanently from French club Monaco.
Gudjohnsen has been left in limbo at White Hart Lane despite the club’s promise to thrash out a new deal if they qualified for the Champions League.
The Icelandic striker has become increasingly frustrated by the situation, prompting Fulham, Stoke and Blackburn to tempt him to leave and sign for them instead.
Chairman Daniel Levy has refused to sign off the deal for the former Bolton, Chelsea and Barcelona star while Tottenham attempt to off-load some key squad players including Robbie Keane.
While Gudjohnsen was happy to remain at Tottenham and has ruled out a return to Monaco, unless there is a significant movement in the next few weeks he is likely to review his position.

It had looked like Harry Redknapp was close to securing a permanent deal for the Icelandic attacker but that deal was not done and Fulham are eager to pick up one hell of a bargain. The 31 year old vastly experienced performer showed what he was capable of during his loan spell at White Hart Lane last term during which time his cameo appearances helped cement the north London sides place in the top four.
If Tottenham are not quick to act they will lose out on a player who would be ideal to have around during their historic Champions League campaign, after all the former Barcelona man has a winners medal of his own to prove his undoubted worth.
