TOTTENHAM are lining up a �10million summer move for Argentinian striker Diego Milito.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp was in Italy on Sunday to see the 29-year-old score in Genoa's 2-0 win against Udinese.

And Redknapp has seen enough of the powerful targetman to convince him to make a firm bid.

Milito was also a target for former Spurs boss Juande Ramos when Real Zaragoza were looking to sell the player last summer.

But Spurs refused to meet Zaragoza's �14m asking price and the player eventually returned to former club Genoa for a cut-price �10m.

Now Redknapp wants to revive the deal and believes Milito can be lured to White Hart Lane to take over from Darren Bent and Roman Pavlyuchenko.
