Tottenham Hotspur are considering meeting Mohamed Diame's £3.5m release clause in January, according to a report.
Mohamed Daime's impressive form for West Ham United has reportedly attracted interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Senegalese midfielder insisted on Thursday that he would not be leaving Upton Park this month but The Guardian reports that the statement has not deterred Spurs.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is rumoured to favour a move for Joao Moutinho but the Porto midfielder's £20m valuation could prove to be a stumbling block in any negotiations.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly sees Diame as a cheaper alternative and may decide to bid £3.5m to meet the 25-year-old's release clause.
Villas-Boas's side are currently fourth in the Premier League.
