Tottenham Hotspur are weighing up a £2 million bid for young Nigerian striker Moses Simon, report the Daily Mail, having watched the 19 year-old during AS Trencin’s Europa League defeat to Hull City.

Simon, a former Ajax youngster, joined the Slovakian side on a free transfer earlier this week and immediately hit the ground running, scoring 7 goals in his first 14 senior games for Trencin in the Slovakian Premier Division.

This form has alerted Spurs, who sent representatives during Trencin’s Europa League tie with Hull City, in which the Slovakian side were perhaps fortunate to end up exiting the competition 2-1 after defeat at the KC Stadium.

Simon didn’t disgrace himself, however, and Mauricio Pochettino is now considering making a move for the youngster as he looks to strengthen his strike force.

Roberto Soldado, Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane are currently the only senior strikers at White Hart Lane – with the former having recently been linked with a loan move to La Liga champions Atletico Madrid after struggling to settle in North London.

It had been expected that Pochettino would move for a more senior centre forward than Simon, but the Nigerian would fit into the Argentinian’s ethos of developing a young, exciting team for the future, similar to the one that he helped to put together at Southampton.
