White Hart Lane the destination of choice for former England captain?
Tottenham are set to rival QPR’s bid to snap up David Beckham when his contract expires in November.
Hoops supremo Tony Fernandes has already confirmed he is keen to dip into his millions to lure the LA Galaxy star, 36, to west London.
Fernandes wrote on his Twitter account: “I think having someone like David in the club would be great. Was always in my thoughts. Lets see.”
But Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is also a big fan and can offer Beckham Europa League football next year if the north Londoners make it through the group stages.
The ex-England captain is desperate to play in the Great Britain team at the 2012 Olympics and a Premier League move would give him a better level of football ahead of the Games.
Beckham trained with Spurs last winter, but was prevented by Galaxy from completing a loan to White Hart Lane back then.
Having replaced the height of Peter Crouch with Emmanuel Adebayor, Redknapp wants someone of Beckham’s calibre to provide the striker with ammunition to maximise his aerial ability.

David Beckham is pretty excellent at crossing – I am sure we can all agree with that.
However, while Aaron Lennon is somewhat out of form on the right flank, he had a good season by all accounts.
He also forms part of Spurs’ greatest strength – breaking at pace down the wings through either himself or Gareth Bale.
The biggest concern for Tottenham Hotspur against Manchester City was their lack of a holding midfielder, but that has since been rectified with the purchase of Scott Parker.
Areas for Harry Redknapp to improve now ought to be full back positions, a top quality centre half, and perhaps a second striker to link midfield with the striker furthest up the pitch.
Would David Beckham be signed by Spurs to improve the team, or increase shirt sales?
