TOTTENHAM are eyeing up a shock move for Leeds winger Dan James.
Spurs are preparing to replace Bryan Gil, who is hoping to rejoin Valencia on a loan deal.
James, 24, joined the Yorkshire club last summer from Manchester United in a £25million deadline day deal.
The Welshman penned a five-year contract with Leeds but now Antonio Conte wants to bring him to London.
Spurs are preparing for life in the Champions League and are considering a loan offer for James with a £20million obligation to buy.
James played a part in both of the last two Prem games for the Whites, despite missing out on the opening day win at home to Wolves.

Spurs are focussing on reducing their squad, hence waiting for Gil to leave before shifting the focus on James.
Gil was shipped out to Valencia on a temporary deal last January without making a single Premier League start.
The winger joined the La Liga side until the end of the season.

And the 21-year-old wants to return.
He says his family told him to quit Tottenham and return to Spain last year.
