Spurs have reportedly placed the Blues striker, who is currently impressing on a season-long loan at Everton, at the top of their summer shopping.
Everton are also keen to land the 20-year-old, who has bagged 13 goals in 26 appearances for the Toffees, in a permanent deal but Chelsea’s £25m valuation is likely to price to Goodison Park club out of a move.
Spurs, however, have the cash and would be able to offer the Belgium international a significant increase on his current £40,000-a-week wages.
“I’m looking for a club for Romelu,” the Belgian’s agent Christophe Henrotay is quoted as saying by the Telegraph.
“And yes, I’ve talked to Daniel Levy once, but that doesn’t mean Romelu will definitely join Spurs. That’s not a talking point at this moment.
“There aren’t 20 teams that can afford to buy Romelu. He won’t go from Everton to, let’s say, Swansea. There’s also a difference between Everton that plays against relegation and an Everton that fights for European football.”
