ogle

Here is my best explanation:

'make eyes at' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'the spanish turn making a comeback' is the subsidiary indication.
'the spanish' becomes 'el'.
'turn' becomes 'go' (a person's move in a board game).
'making a comeback' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.
'el'+'go'='elgo'
'elgo' written backwards gives 'ogle'.
