Tottenham reportedly scouting exciting midfielder Kostas Fortounis this week

The Olympiacos midfielder is reportedly on Tottenham Hotspur's radar.

According to a report from Greek website Sport FM, Tottenham Hotspur are sending scouts to watch this evening’s Euro 2016 qualifying match between Northern Ireland and Greece, with the intention of watching one player in particular.

That player is Greek midfielder Kostas Fortounis, who is currently on the books at Olympiacos and who is enjoying a blistering start to the new campaign.

So far this season, Fortounis has scored five goals and provided six assists in eight matches, and Tottenham fans will no doubt be pleased to hear he is the player who set up both goals when the Greek side defeated Arsenal 2-1 in this season’s Champions League.

So he is clearly confident against English opposition, and at just 22 he seemingly has a very bright future ahead of him.

Fortounis is taking the Greek Super League by storm this season, having a hand in nine goals in just six matches, so it is no surprise Tottenham are said to be scouting him.

Predominantly an attacking midfielder who can also play as a secondary striker he would certainly add more goals to Tottenham’s side, but with Everton also said to be scouting him this evening it will not be easy to get him when the time comes to start negotiating.

Fortounis is yet to score for his country, so what better time to start than with Premier League scouts watching him?
