Tottenham Hotspur have become the latest club to show an interest in Sheffield United striker Iliman Ndiaye, according to the Daily Mail.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a decent season in front of goal for the Blades having netted fiften goals in 52 appearances in helping his side secure their return to the Premier League with a second-placed finish in the Championship (transfermarkt).

It is reported that Tottenham scouts were in attendance to watch Ndiaye in action for Sheffield United in their league fixture against Preston North End which saw the forward find the back of the net in the 4-1 win at Bramall Lane.

Everton are also said to be keen on the Senegalese international who impressed at the World Cup, with the Toffees having tabled a bid in excess of £25million during the winter transfer window which was rejected (The Star).

Nidiaye, a team-mate of Pape Matar Sarr, appeared three times during the tournament in Qatar, including an appearance against England in the round of sixteen match.

Tottenham already have young strikers with potential in the form of Troy Parrott and Dane Scarlett, the last thing we need with respect to Ndiaye is another forward to stunt the progress of the latter pair.

If Harry Kane is to leave this summer, bringing in someone of Ndiaye’s inexperience is hardly going to pleasure the already disgruntled fanbase.
