The forward has completed a full week's training as Mauricio Pochettino and the coaching staff prepare the team for Monday night's trip to Stoke in the Premier League.
Clinton has been out since damaging his knee in the Europa League group match against Monaco on December 10. Nabil Bentaleb (knee) also remains sidelined.
"Nabil is still out and Clinton, he's had a full week's training, he's nearly ready to be selected again and then it's my decision," reported Mauricio after training on Friday.
"Now we only have one competition, one game a week and big competition (for places) because nearly everyone is fit for selection."
