White Hart Lane side chase Argentine marksman.
Tottenham made an enquiry for Higuain at the start of the season and that interest remains.
Higuain is well regarded at Madrid but it is understood that, despite public declarations that he is part of their future plans, they would listen to suitable offers.
Madrid may wait until they snap up another striker themselves before they let him go but there will be no shortage of interest in the Argentine.
Juventus also monitored his situation while Chelsea and Manchester City are also keen.
Andre Villas-Boas is a fan and he would like to take him to Tottenham but they may struggle without the attraction of Champions League football.

Tottenham could well do with attacking re-inforcements this summer but a move for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain may be a little too ambitious given that the North London club has no Champions League football to offer the Argentine.
The 24 year old Bernabeu forward has struggled to secure a regular berth in Jose Mourinho’s first team set-up as the Real Madrid boss has invariably opted for Karim Benzema as his sole striker but even so a move to White Hart Lane seems highly unlikely.
Having offloaded the likes of Roman Pavluchenko, Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch over the past 18 months Tottenham had to rely on on loan Man City man Emmanuel Adebayor for goals last term and have also opted to not offer Louis Saha a new deal so it’s no surprise that chairman Daniel Levy would be looking to bring in a striker this summer but a move for Higuain seems destined to fail.
