Atsu's future at Porto has been the subject of intense speculation with the Ghana international refusing to sign a new deal at the Estadio do Dragao.
As a result of his contract wrangle, Atsu has found himself in exile at Porto and the Portuguese side are now thought to be ready to sell the 21-year-old rather than see him run down his contract and leave on a free transfer next summer.
Liverpool are thought to have had one offer for Atsu rejected earlier this summer, but now Tottenham are weighing up a move for the speedy wideman.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is a big fan of Atsu having given the player his debut while he was in charge of Porto.
Villas-Boas could be in the market for new wide players if Gareth Bale leaves this summer and Atsu is thought to figure highly on his wanted list.
Atsu, who is set to play for Ghana against Turkey this week, has always indicated he would like to play in the Premier League and Spurs have been encouraged to make a move for him, with Porto now resigned to selling him for a cut price fee.
