Ambitious Tottenham have discussed moving for Inter Milan star Samuel Eto'o at board level.

The London Evening Standard says Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has been keen to sign a forward during the transfer window but has had to contend with the high salaries of players like Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan.

The club are also thought to have pondered a move for Inter frontman Samuel Eto'o but he is believed to earn about €10million (£8.6m) per year.
