Tottenham and Everton want AC Milan's Keisuke Honda

AC Milan midfielder Keisuke Honda is a target of both Everton and Tottenham, talkSport is reporting.

Honda moved to Milan from CSKA Moscow in 2013 and has 43 Serie A appearances and seven goals to his name.

The 29-year-old is not a guaranteed name on the team-sheet so could be looking for a move. With 29 goals for Japan to his name, the playmaker could be just what Roberto Martinez needs in his Everton side - helping to ease the huge amount of pressure on Romelu Lukaku to provide the Toffees' goals.

McGeady to leave Merseyside?

Honda was used frequently on the right wing last season, even more of a reason that Martinez would be showing an interest given that Aiden McGeady has failed to impress during his time on Merseyside.

Sunderland were said to be keeping tabs on the Irishman earlier this summer but this interest looks to have faded.

Filling the void?

Spurs on the other hand may see Honda as someone who can fill the void left in the squad by the departure of Lewis Holtby and Paulinho for a combined fee of around £14 million. 

Mauricio Pochettino is yet to strengthen his midfield despite the departure of Holtby and Paulinho, along with 22-year-old Cristian Ceballos to Charlton Athletic who failed to make the grade at White Heart Lane.

Tottenham kick-off their Premier League campaign with a trip to Old Trafford tomorrow and could welcome back goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who suffered a wrist injury against AC Milan during the club's final pre-season fixture.
