Tottenham Turn Their Sights On In-Form Ligue 1 Hotshot To Solve Striking Woes

Spurs are tracking Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder.

Tottenham Hotspur are casting their eye over the progress of Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder, report the Mirror, as the club prepare to bring in a new forward in the January transfer window as senior duo Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado continued to struggle to find their goalscoring touch at White Hart Lane.

Ben Yedder has started this season in fine form for Toulouse, following on from an impressive 2013/14 campaign, emerging as one of the most exciting attackers in Ligue 1, a league that is often better known for its defenders and midfielders than out-and-out goalscorers.

The 24 year-old, who has picked up three caps for France Under 21s but is also eligible for Tunisia, has scored 34 goals in 87 games since signing from lower league club UJA Alfortville – an impressive record for a player going through the formative years of his footballing career.

Toulouse rate Ben Yedder as their most valuable asset, however, and are unlikely to settle for less than £5m for the player, although that could represent something of a bargain if he is able to continue his goalscoring form after making the step up to the Premier League.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has seemed frustrated with his striking options at the start of this season, with senior duo Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado horrible out of form and youngster Harry Kane not yet to shoulder the burden of goalscoring on his own.
