Tottenham Hotspur are eager to sign Stuttgart centre-back Serdar Tasci, according to the player's agent.

Harry Redknapp is thought to be keen to strengthen in defence following the departure of Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King's persistent injury problems, and he is reported to have made a bid for Tasci last summer.

The player's agent, Maurizio Gaudino, has now claimed Spurs are still monitoring Tasci's situation but may face competition from other Premier League clubs.

"Tottenham and two other English clubs are keen on Serdar," Gaudino said in The Sun. "No discussions are yet under way, but it's down to the interested clubs to speak with Stuttgart and myself."

Germany international Tasci, 24, is thought to be worth around £12 million and has also been linked with Arsenal, Juventus, Lazio and Malaga.
