Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keeping close tabs on Sevilla forward Carlos Bacca.

Spurs sent club officials to watch the 28-year-old in action against Celta Vigo last week, according to the Sunday People.

The weekend newspaper claim that Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino wants to re-shape his squad during the transfer window, with a move for Bacca – possibly using Roberto Soldado in part-exchange – one deal that is being considered.

Not many people had heard of Bacca three years ago, but he has developed into one of the deadliest strikers in Europe.

Bacca joined Belgian side Club Brugge in January 2012, scoring 24 goals in 45 league games.

That form earned a move to Sevilla, for whom he has netted 24 times in 51 La Liga outings.

Bacca has also got an impressive goals record at international level, bagging six in 15 senior appearances for Colombia.

Tottenham, arguably, have one of the most in-form strikers in the world in their squad at present. Harry Kane has scored seven goals in his last eight games.

However, Kane is the only Spurs frontman looking good. Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor are both enduring tough times at White Hart Lane, so the need for new blood is clear.
