Tottenham have joined the chase for Luis Boa Morte with a £4million bid for the Fulham player.
Spurs see the Portugal international as ideal competition for Andy Reid on the left side of midfield.
Newcastle had a £3.5m offer rejected after Boa Morte made it clear to Fulham he wanted a move to a bigger club.
Middlesbrough last week made in a number of inquiries, but have yet to make a bid.
Fulham boss Chris Coleman made it clear Boa Morte, 26, will not be leaving for less than his £5m valuation. Boa Morte featured in the team’s best displays last season but is unhappy at Craven Cottage, particularly after the sale of Edwin van der Sar and Andy Cole.
Newcastle tried to buy him in January, but Spurs seem to be favourites, as Boa Morte would like to stay in London.
