Tottenham’s reported La Liga target impresses on international duty

Rumoured Premier League target and Valencia star Sofiane Feghouli scored twice for Algeria in a comfortable 4-1 win over Oman in a friendly this week

International friendlies are rarely an accurate indicator when it comes to assessing a player’s Premier League capabilities, but one reported Tottenham Hotspur target may have gone some way to enhancing his reputation this week.

Valencia winger and Algeria World Cup star Sofiane Feghouli emerged as a potential Spurs target earlier this month, with the Daily Star among those linking the 25-year-old with a White Hart Lane switch.

A hard-working and disciplined right-winger, Feghouli has emerged as something of a star for both Los Che and the Desert Foxes in recent years.

Under contract with the Spanish club until 2016, the Algerian midfielder has already weighed in with three goals and a further five assists from 13 appearances in La Liga.

And on the basis of his latest outing for his country, any reported Tottenham interest in the north African attacker could soon become reality.

Impressive from the off against Oman, Feghouli found the net twice for the Desert Foxes in a comfortable 4-1 victory.

Likely to be hot transfer property come the summer, on the basis of this performance alone, Spurs may want to move quickly to nab their man.
