Anderlecht forward Paul Mukairu is being ‘closely followed’ by Tottenham ahead of the summer transfer window.
That’s according to Voetbal Primeur, who say the 21-year-old, who is on loan from Turkish side Antalyaspor, is a target for José Mourinho’s side.
Mukairu has been impressive for Anderlecht this season, with two goals and four assists in 19 games in the Jupiler League this season.
That has seen him linked with a move elsewhere, with a report in Belgium last month stating that Tottenham had their eye on him and were willing to pay the €5m asking price for him.
That report stated they were not the only ones interested, with Roma and Bayer Leverkusen also named as suitors and Anderlecht open to negotiating a sale on the loanee, whose deal includes an option to buy for €2.5m
Voetbal Primeur back that up and state that the player is being ‘closely followed’ by Tottenham, Roma and Ajax.
There is no mention of an incoming bid or willingness to make a big, just that these ‘big teams’ are keeping an eye on him.
Mukairu, for his part, ‘feels good’ at Anderlecht, so is not rushing to make a move away at this point, although that could easily change if the aforementioned clubs come seriously calling for him.
