Tottenham interested in Senegal striker


TOTTENHAM are considering a summer bid for Sion striker Moussa Konate.

The Senegal international, who has scored 24 goals in 46 matches in the Swiss league, is likely to be available for around £6million.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bring in another forward as cover for Harry Kane or as an option to play alongside the England star.

The Daily Mirror reports: “Tottenham have now ditched their interest in Fulham’s teenage striker Moussa Dembele after the collapse of his move to White Hart Lane on January transfer deadline day and Konate is now a leading contender to fill a gap in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.”

Konate, 23, who can play centrally or out wide, made headlines as a teenager at the 2012 Olympic Games in London by scoring five goals in just four games for Senegal, before joining FC Krasnodar.


However, he managed just the solitary goal in 10 appearances for the Russian side and fared even worse when sent on loan to Genoa, hitting the target just once in 25 outings.

But since arriving at Sion in 2014, Konate has impressed and has regularly found the back of the net.

Should Spurs sign Konate or should they be looking for a ‘bigger’ name?
