Tottenham have opened talks with Club Brugge over the signing of attacker Antonio Nusa, the PA news agency understands.
Spurs have held a long-standing interest in the 18-year-old and have moved to secure the services of the highly-rated Norway international this month.
The potential recruitment of Nusa would be Tottenham’s third addition of the January transfer window, but he would return to Club Brugge on loan for the remainder of the campaign, PA understands.
Nusa has built up a strong reputation since he made his Norwegian top-flight debut at the age of 16 in 2021 while at Stabaek.

He moved to Club Brugge later that year and hit the headlines when he scored on his Champions League debut against Porto.
Tottenham have continued to keep tabs on Nusa, who marked his full Norway debut in September with a goal against Jordan.
Ange Postecoglou has already secured the signings of Radu Dragusin and Timo Werner this month.
Spurs have also been busy with outgoings with Djed Spence, Japhet Tanganga, Ash Phillips, Sergio Reguilon and Alfie Devine all finding new clubs for the second half of the season, while long-serving players Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier have departed.
Tottenham will listen to offers for Ryan Sessegnon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Bryan Gil and Ivan Perisic, but young duo Alfie Dorrington and Jamie Donley are set to remain part of Postecoglou’s first-team squad despite numerous loan interest.
