White Hart Lane side keen on Etihad Stadium forward.
Tottenham could make a sensational move for unsettled Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko in the January transfer window.
The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has voiced his disillusionment with life on the bench under Roberto Mancini and that has alerted Spurs, who are desperately looking to add to their options up front.

Having already nabbed Emmanuel Adebayor from Premier League title holders Man City it appears Andre Villas-Boas is keen to repeat the feat as he pursues Bosnian international Edin Dzeko, a player Roberto Mancini may not be quite so ready to see heading for the Etihad Stadium exit.
The £27m Man City signing has constantly struggled to secure a regular first team spot, despite the fact he has been scoring on a regular basis, and the former Wolfsburg man may well be tempted by the chance of a move to Tottenham in January.
Edin Dzeko has made 52 Premier League appearances since moving to the English top tier, of which half were coming from the bench. However the powerfully built forward has still managed to rack up an impressive 21 goals and has managed five thus far this season.
Villas-Boas may well prefer Dzeko to summer signing Adebayor, who is still waiting for his first Premier League start of the season. England man Jermain Defoe has done well to hold on to his spot in the Spurs starting eleven, netting five goals in nine games.
