Bakari features for Spurs in a friendly against Nottingham Forest - and could well be brought in as emergency cover for Robbie Keane.
Keane has been ruled out for the start of the season with an ankle injury - and new coach Jacques Santini is desperate to bring in a new forward.
Spurs are looking to seal a one-year loan deal for the player - possibly with the option to buy should Bakari impress.
The 29-year-old Ivory Coast international has been pleased with his impact so far.
"Until now it has gone smoothly," said Bakari.
"The club is looking for an anchorage forward and Santini explained he wanted me to play.
"I lacked a little pace, but I didn't make too bad an impression."
