Tottenham chief scout Ian Broomfield was at Ewood Park on Monday evening watching Blackburn ace Junior Hoilett in action.
The 21-year-old Canadian forward has been heavily linked with a move away from Rovers when his current contract expires at the end of the season as he is yet to put pen-to-paper on a new deal which was offered to him six months ago.
Hoilett remained at the club during the January transfer window despite reported interest from Spurs and Newcastle, along with several clubs in Italy and Germany.
Rovers chief Steve Kean has always maintained that he is hopeful of keeping the player on board at the end of the season if they win their battle to avoid relegation, while Hoilett stressed last month that he is just focused on his football.
But it appears that Spurs will be mounting a new bid to take Hoilett to White Hart Lane in the summer after Broomfield was spotted in the stands at Ewood Park as Rovers dropped back into the relegation zone.
If Hoilett does leave Rovers, the club will be entitled to compensation due to the fact he is under the age of 24 but that figure will be nowhere near what they could get in the normal market.
