Tottenham want to sign Liverpool's Peter Crouch - but will turn to James Beattie or Juan Pablo Angel if they fail to land the beanpole hitman.Crouch began his career as a trainee at White Hart Lane and The People claim Martin Jol wants to bring him back to the club.
The gangly goalgetter has been struggling to claim a regular starting place at Anfield and Newcastle have already failed in a bid to land him.
However the News of the World believes Beattie will be the striker Jol lands in his deadline-busting deal.
He is reported to be heading out of Everton for White Hart Lane in a £4.5million deal.
