Mainz striker Jean-Philippe Mateta remains a target for Premier League clubs.
Crystal Palace made an attempt for Mateta last month, though that trail has since run cold.
Instead, reports BILD, Tottenham have made contact with Mainz about a price for the attacker, along with an unnamed Bundesliga rival.
Spurs see Mateta as cover for star striker Harry Kane.
Mainz are prepared to sell Mateta and would be happy to close a sale in the coming days.
