Tottenham Hotspur face competition from Liverpool for the signature of highly-rated Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, according to the Daily Mail.

21-year-old Salah, who currently represents Swiss champions FC Basel after moving to St. Jakob-Park from El-Mokawloon SC in April 2012, has been attracted admiring glances from a number of teams of late following an impressive spell of form both domestically and in European competition.

Andre Villas-Boas' Spurs - who strengthened their attacking options considerably during the summer in order to compensate for the loss of Welsh star Gareth Bale - have been strongly linked with a potential switch for Salah. 

However, the Daily Mail suggests that may have to battle with Brendan Rodgers' high-flying Reds for the Egypt International who is reportedly valued by his club at around the £15 million mark.

Liverpool have enjoyed a hugely positive start to the 2013/14 domestic campaign, with the form of attacking duo Luis Suarez and England's Daniel Sturridge propelling them to the lofty heights of third position in the top-flight standings.

Whether they - or indeed Spurs, who are currently fourth in the Premier League - can establish themselves as genuine title contenders, however, remains to be seen. 

The addition of a tricky livewire such as Salah would surely only boost such hopes.
