Tottenham are keeping tabs on Tunisian attacker Youssef Msakni, according to ESPN.
Msakni didn’t play for Tunisia against England on Monday after suffering a cruciate ligament injury just before the World Cup.
The 27-year-old, who plays for Qatari side Al Duhail, is considered one of the most talented players in Tunisia.
He scored 25 goals and provided 14 assists in just 24 appearances for his club in 2017/18, according to HITC.
And ESPN claims Spurs could battle Arsenal for Msakni this summer – Ligue 1 side Marseille have also been linked.
An attacker is believed to be on Mauricio Pochettino’s list of summer transfer targets.
Msakni’s statistics are obviously impressive, but there will inevitably be a debate over whether he can translate that form over to one of Europe’s top five leagues.
Tottenham are said to be keen on Manchester United striker Anthony Martial and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.
However, deals for those players could prove difficult, and the Londoners are likely to be looking at alternatives.
Whether Msakni is a genuine option for Spurs remains to be seen.
