Tottenham are lining up a bid for Roma striker Marco Borriello after failing to land Atletico Madrid’s Adrian Lopez, according to the Metro.

New Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is wanting to add at least one striker to his ranks this summer as he looks to re-shape his squad ahead of next season.

A deal for Emmanuel Adebayor is still in the pipeline if the two parties can agree personal terms, but AVB is still keen on adding more firepower and has identified Borriello, if the Metro is to be believed.

The 30-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Juventus and has been told he is not part of Roma’s first-team plans next term, so is free to find a new club. Tottenham are said to have registered their interest but will face competition from Werder Bremen and Galatasaray.

Spurs are lining up a bid for the Italian striker after failing to agree a deal to sign Atletico Madrid’s Adrian Lopez.

Tottenham were strongly linked with Adrian in recent weeks, but Atletico boss Diego Simone insists the 24-year-old is not for sale, although a deal could still happen if the players £14m buy-out clause is triggered.

Spurs are reluctant to pay that much for the Spaniard so have began looked at other targets, with Borriello thought to be among them.
