White Hart Lane side look set to strengthen attack.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Tottenham will peruse Lyon striker Lisandro Lopez as well as Valencia striker Roberto Soldado as look to add quality in attack reports The Daily Mirror.

The White Hart Lane club have reportedly submitted an improved £22million offer for the 28-year-old Spanish international with recently appointed Spurs Technical Director Franco Baldini in Spain yesterday to put together a deal for the former Real Madrid man.

But once the potential transfer is completed the club will turn their attentions to Lopez who was the subject of failed January transfer window bid from Spurs. The club could now be ready to move again for the Argentina international forward, who has won nine caps for his country.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is a known admirer of the 30-year-old, who can also feature on either wing and he has ambitions to play him alongside Soldado at the North London club as the Portuguese boss looks to ensure Champions League qualification during the upcoming campaign.

Lopez has now reached the final year of his contract at the Stade de Gerland and after a disagreement with current manager Remi Garde he has reportedly informed the club he will not be signing an extension and instead wants to depart this summer.

The former Porto man has been impressive during his last four years with the Les Gones, playing 166 times, hitting 82 goals for the French side and that has also brought about interest from money-bags Monaco who despite signing Radamel Falcao for a fee around £60m are still chasing extra quality upfront.
