Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is stepping up his interest in Genoa striker Rodrigo Palacio.

Itasportpress says Redknapp sees Palacio as a potential January signing as he seeks to boost his attacking options.

The Spurs boss has good information from scouts on the Argentine and will have Ian Broomfield run his eye over Palacio in the coming weeks for a final assessment.

Palacio insisted only this week he was happy at Genoa, though the chance of playing in London will prove tempting for the ex-Boca Juniors star.
