Harry Redknapp hopes to lure Belgian to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham may offer Giovani dos Santos to Lille in their efforts to prise Eden Hazard from Lille.
Manchester United and City were represented as Hazard helped Lille beat Paris St Germain 2-1 on Sunday, during which he registered a spectacular assist.
But Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp remains keen and could use Dos Santos as a makeweight.
Redknapp said: ‘We nearly sold Gio at the start of the season for £13m to Udinese. The chairman of Udinese came over and had a chat but he wouldn’t go.’

Tottenham will of course be just one of many looking to nab Eden Hazard and Harry Redknapp knows that the chances of bringing the Belgian playmaker to White Hart Lane will be severely diminished if the North London side do not secure Champions League football for next term.
The young Lille man has had an excellent season, perhaps even more so than last term when he helped his side to their first Ligue 1 title in over 50 years, and Stade Metropole boss Rudi Garcia knows he will lose Hazard in the summer and it’s very much a case of the club looking to get the best deal possible.
The addition of Giovani dos Santos into any deal could be tempting but there is speculation that Garcia will look to garner a big straight cash fee so that he can spend freely on improving his squad, starting with an offer for Liverpool’s Joe Cole who has enjoyed his loan spell at Lille this season.
