Tottenham Hotspur keen on Czech hitman

Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a move for Watford loanee Matej Vydra – should the Hornets fail to reach the Premier League.

The Czech striker scored twice for Gianfranco Zola’s side in the 3-1 play-off semi-final, second leg victory against Leicester City, helping the Hertfordshire club secure a trip to Wembley and a shot at the big time.

However, defeat to Crystal Palace will consign the club to another campaign in the Npower Championship, and The Evening Standard claims Vydra is reluctant to spend another 12 months in the second tier of English football.

The report goes on to claim that the 22-goals forward is ‘desperate’ to test himself in the Premier League, and that Spurs, Fulham and Aston Villa have all made enquiries for the 21-year-old.

A seven-cap international, Vydra is contracted to Udinese until the summer of 2016, and would command a fee well in excess of the £5million previously mooted as an asking price, according to the paper.

Spurs are thought to be in the market for a striker this summer, with Alvaro Negredo and Leandro Damiao both linked with moves to White Hart Lane.

Andre Villas-Boas has had problems in attack this season, with injury hampering Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor struggling to find form for large spells as Tottenham Hotspur challenge for a place in the top four.

Vydra would certainly add an extra attacking dimension to the Spurs side, but much will depend on how Watford fair against the Eagles on Monday, 27th May.
