Bournemouth’s Joshua King is reportedly wanted by Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has revealed in The Mirror that Bournemouth forward Joshua King could join Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

King has been linked with a move from Bournemouth to Premier League rivals Tottenham this summer.

According to The Telegraph, Spurs are interested in signing the 25-year-old forward, and that the Cherries are likely to demand as much as £30 million to part company with him.

Former Liverpool striker Fowler has revealed that he has heard that the Norway international could move to Tottenham in the summer transfer window.

The former Leeds United striker has also given his take on Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen, who struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane last season.

The 23-year-old Netherlands international striker scored two goals and provided two assists in 27 Premier League appearances for the North London outfit during the 2016-17 campaign.

Fowler has also claimed that Tottenham, who finished second in the Premier League last season, were lucky during the 2016-17 campaign.

“The Dutch lad Vincent Janssen hasn’t cut it either, and he does not look ­Tottenham class,” Fowler wrote in The Mirror. “I am not slagging him, just being realistic – he is not good enough to replace Harry Kane.

“Spurs got lucky last season because Kane only had one injury spell and they did not miss him too much. But if he gets a bad one or struggles, they will need better quality as back-up.

“They will go and spend. There will be a striker coming in – I’ve heard ­Bournemouth’s Josh King is a possible – and despite the fact there have been a few misfires in recent years, they have been building a good quality squad.”
