New Tottenham Hotspur boss Nuno is said to be keen on landing Haris Seferovic, after his stellar Euro 2020 tournament.

The Daily Mirror claim that Seferovic is on Tottenham’s radar, as they look to increase their striking options.

Spurs will need cover for Harry Kane, as Carlos Vinicius did not do enough to see his loan spell turned into a permanent move.

Interestingly Spurs are now said to be chasing another Benfica player, with Seferovic being tracked.

Few players increased their profile more than the powerful Swiss forward at Euro 2020, where he netted three goals.

Seferovic was actually part of the Switzerland side who broke Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris’ heart, as they dumped France out of the competition.

Seferovic scored a brilliant header in that match, and it seems that Tottenham could now submit a bid, with Benfica set to sell for lower than his release clause.

Seferovic has a £50 million exit clause in his current deal with the Portuguese side, but it is felt that an offer of around £20 million could be enough to bring him to Spurs, and at that price he could be an appealing option, given that he scored 26 goals for Benfica last season.
