Tottenham are retaining an interest in Lorient striker Kevin Gameiro.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has been frustrated by his failure to bolster his strikeforce in the past year, something which has been compounded by the mediocre form of his current forwards.

Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko have scored just 27 goals between them in all competitions this season, among that a paltry 11 in the Barclays Premier League.

Redknapp is keeping tabs on Lorient striker Gameiro, a 23-year-old Frenchman who has scored 17 goals in 26 games this season.

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce also had scouts check on Gameiro last weekend.
