Report: Paul Mitchell identifies Moussa Konate for possible Spurs move, could cost £6m

Tottenham are reportedly keen on Sion forward Moussa Konate.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur have identified Sion striker Moussa Konate as a possible transfer target for this summer.

Spurs' bid for the Premier League title came up short on Monday evening, as their 2-2 draw away at London rivals Chelsea handed the title to Leicester City.

Regardless, Tottenham have enjoyed a remarkable season under Mauricio Pochettino, and there is plenty to be optimistic about for Spurs fans ahead of the summer transfer window - but they do need some new signings to continue their progression.

One position which certainly needs to be addressed is up front, where Harry Kane has no depth behind him - and if Spurs lose their top goalscorer, Pochettino will have plenty of problems on his hands.

Now, The Mirror report that Spurs are now keen on Sion striker Moussa Konate, who has made quite the name for himself during his time with Switzerland.

The 23-year-old attacker, who can play up front or out wide, hit headlines at the 2012 Olympic Games in London by scoring five goals in just four games for Senegal, before disappointing spells with FC Krasnodar and Genoa.

Now though, Konate has hit 24 goals in 46 games for Sion, and his form in Switzerland has caught the attention of Tottenham's recruitment chief Paul Mitchell, who is considering the Senegal international for a summer move to White Hart Lane.

It's claimed that, with Spurs ending their interest in Fulham striker Moussa Dembele, Konate could be targeted in a deal worth £6m, offering Tottenham real pace in the final third, even if he's not the big-name striker some Spurs fans are hoping for.
