Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United eager on Besiktas ahead Cyle Larin
Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are both keen on Besiktas striker Cyle Larin, 90 minutes before the summer transfer window.
Spurs want a new striker with Carlos Vinicius to return to Benfica at the end of the season after his loan from a nondescript Premier League season. There is also growing uncertainty about Harry Kane’s future in the club.
Larin has scored 22 goals this season and supported four more in the Super Lig and Cup. His ability to play as number 9 and on both wings has impressed West Ham and its London rivals.
David Moyes’ side have sent scouts to take control of the Canada international and are not expected to cost an arm and a leg with just a little over a year left on his contract.
The 26-year-old has scored 43 league goals in three seasons with MLS team Orlando City and is beginning to prove that he has what it takes to make a name for himself in Europe.
While Tottenham is a big club that any striker would love to play for, Larin knows that if he joins them, he would have to play second fiddle after Harry Kane and Heung-min Son and he might not be interested.
Regular minutes of play are almost guaranteed at West Ham. Moyes is looking for a good striker to replace Sebastien Haller.
The Hammers could also play European football next season, and their players are under less pressure than constant media monitoring at Spurs.
More candidates will definitely join the race for the Canadian who is on the verge of sacking Besiktas to the Super Lig title and it will be interesting to see which club comes out on top.
