Tottenham are looking to bolster their squad after letting a number of players leave White Hart Lane in the last few weeks.
Spurs boss Martin Jol is thought to be a big fan of Taylor and sees his versatility as a key addition to his squad.
Portsmouth chief Harry Redknapp has admitted he may have to let some players leave after bringing in nine new faces and that, reluctantly, he would listen to offers for Taylor.
Taylor was close to a switch to Fulham earlier this month only for the move to fall through.
Spurs are now thought to have made their interest in Taylor known and are ready to tie up a deal before the transfer window slams shut later on Tuesday.
Taylor's agent Willie McKay revealed both clubs are in discussions over a possible deal.
"Portsmouth and Tottenham are currently in talks about a deal for Matty," McKay told skysports.com.
"Tottenham are working hard to sign Matty before the close of the transfer window."
