Tottenham are in talks with AS Roma striker Marco Borriello.

The Mirror says Spurs are in talks over a January move for Roma's Borriello, according to the player's agent.

"Marco is very happy in Rome and with Roma, but clearly the recovery of Francesco Totti and Mattia Destro from injury is reducing his space and he'd like to play more," Carlo Cavalieri said.

"His profile is very much appreciated in England, as they are looking for players like this.

"Being here in London I had the chance to talk to various clubs. Tottenham? Yes, they were among them.

"For the moment he is happy at Roma, then we'll see what happens over the next few days."
