As Tottenham’s pursuit of a striker that can play an integral role in the clubs impending Champions League season continues to heat up, rumours suggest that Moussa Konate of FC Sion could be the latest man that the club seem set to express an interest in.
The Senegalese international has shown exceptional form since joining the side in 2014, with 24 goals in 46 matches and is also versatile enough to operate both centrally or in a wider role.
With Clinton N’Jie failing to prove his worth since signing for the club last summer, Konate could be the ideal replacement for the Cameroonian, were the club to chose to part ways with him.
At 23 years old and fiercely athletic, Konate would also seem to be an ideal candidate for Pochettino’s style of play.
The Senegalese striker would also be available at a snip in comparison to many other strikers available on the market, with reports suggesting he would cost a mere £6 million (one suspects that Mr Levy’s eyes may have lit up at that!)
Despite Konate having an impressive season at FC Sion, I personally would love to see Alexandre Lacazette. Not only does the Frenchman boast a truly exceptional goal record of 45 goals in the last to seasons in a more competitive league but he would also represent a clear signal of intent from the club – we are serious about challenging for glory.
Spurs have also been linked to Marseille’s goal machine Michy Batshuayi, who has scored 25 goals in 62 league matches since his 2014 debut and is said to be well-admired by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
However, with a whole host of in-form strikers continuing to be linked to Tottenham Hotspur, it seems more than likely that there will be an exciting addition to Harry and the rest of the front line before long.
