Senegal wing man in Spurs link

Tottenham have been linked with a swoop to sign Lazio's Senegal international winger Keita Balde.

Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bolster his wide positions at the club ahead of the new season getting under way at Newcastle this Sunday, but he has so far been thwarted in his efforts to bring in new faces.

But reports claim he will now push to sign Balde, who impressed in Italy last term with 16 goals in 31 appearances.

He had been linked with Juventus, but they have since signed Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich and Federico Bernardeschi from Fiorentina, while Napoli had a £19.5million bid rejected.

It's believed that Lazio value the player at £27million and because Balde can operate in a forward role in addition to being a winger, Spurs could use the Rome outfit's interest in their striker Vincent Janssen by including the Dutch hitman as part of any deal.
