Sporting striker keen on Tottenham move

Yannick Djalo could be set to shun interest from Italy in order to join Tottenham, according to his agent. The Sporting Lisbon striker has attracted plenty of admirers this summer and is tipped to be on the move before the summer transfer window slams shut. His has options to consider, with a number of Serie A clubs believed to be monitoring his situation. However, the 24-year-old is said to favour a switch to England and is prepared to hold out for a Premier League move. That will please the likes of Tottenham, who it is claimed are in the running for Djalo's signature.

Choice

His representative believes an agreement to take his client to White Hart Lane is likely and expects a deal to be struck sooner rather than later. "I believe Yannick will not play in Italy," Lionel da Silva told Calcio News 24. "He is a player who is wanted in England and Tottenham looks like the most likely destination." While Spurs have made no secret of their desire to add this summer, any move for Djalo would see them acquire a player who would be unavailable to them in Europe as he has already turned out for Sporting in the Europa League qualifiers.
