Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Bournemouth striker Josh King in recent weeks.
The striker’s contract with on the south coast runs out in the summer of 2021 and the club are said to be considering cashing in on him ahead of the next campaign for around £20million (Evening Standard).
Spurs are said to be keen on landing the 28-year-old on loan but are reportedly facing competition from Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal for his signature (Sky Sports).
Football Insider claim that Tottenham’s chances of landing King might depend on whether Bournemouth are able to land Stoke City forward Tyrese Campbell.
The report reveals that Campbell, who is the son of former Everton and Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell has been earmarked as King’s replacement by Eddie Howe’s side should the Norwegian international depart the Vitality Stadium this summer.
Bournemouth have reportedly already seen an initial offer of around £10million rejected by Stoke for Campbell.
It is suggested that any deal for King is likely to be given the green light if Bournemouth manage to land the Stoke City starlet.

King would be a terrific signing for us as not only could he serve as a back up to Harry Kane but he can also cover the wide areas owing to his versatility. Signing the Bournemouth star will mean that we do not necessarily need to move for the likes of Willian and Fraser. However, much will depend on whether King will be okay with the prospect of playing second fiddle to Kane.
