Spurs ahead of Arsenal, Liverpool for Bordeaux's Chamakh

Tottenham lead the race for Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh.

Tottenham lead the race for Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh.

The Daily Mail says Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has ordered scouting reports on the 25-year old after being alerted to growing interest in him from clubs in the Barclays Premier League and Bundesliga.

Newcastle failed in a bid to prise him away from the Stade Chaban Delmas earlier this season, while Arsenal and Liverpool have also been represented at recent Bordeaux games as the French-born Morocco international continues to build a reputation as one of Ligue 1's most accomplished target men.

With doubts continuing about Darren Bent's White Hart Lane future, though, Tottenham are emerging as strong candidates to land the 6ft 2in attacker in an £8million deal at the end of the season.
