Spurs could move for Benitez

Tottenham Hotspur are being tipped to make a bid for Club America striker Christian Benitez.

Benitez's three goals have ignited the title race
Benitez has won 58 caps for Ecuador.

Benitez, who had a spell on loan at Birmingham City in 2009-10, he has proved a consistent figure in front of goal in his two seasons at Club America after moving from Santos Laguna. His 30 goals helped the club clinch the title last term with Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas now eager to bring him back to the Premier League.

"There could be a good offer for Christian from Tottenham," Club America president Ricardo Pelaez is quoted as saying in the Sun . "I've spoken with him and he wants to return to Europe. We won't clip his wings if we get an offer that suits us.

"Of course there are bids for him - he has been the league's top scorer three times after all. He is a great guy and a magnificent player. He is under contract but we'll look to see what is the best option."

Benitez is known as Chucho and has won 58 caps for Ecuador.
