Tottenham join race to sign Arsenal & Chelsea striker target

Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia, who is also attracting summer interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Daily Mail reports how the 26-year-old is being considered by a number of Premier League suitors, but at the present time is way down on Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho's prospective list of targets.

That could clear the path for Spurs to hijack a deal for Doumbia, with his agent Jean Bernard Beytrison expected in London over the weekend to hold talks over a potential switch to White Hart Lane.

The Ivory Coast international has scored 16 goals in 18 games this season, but has previously been priced out of a move to England due to his fluctuating valuation between £15-30million.

Doumbia won the Golden Boot in Russia in 2012 which first alerted Arsenal and Chelsea to his talent, only for injury to halt his progress as a prolific marksman in 2012/13.

Having returned to form again this year, a switch to Tottenham remains a distinct possibility, providing the Gunners and the Blues don't change their plans and renew interest in the CSKA Moscow star.

A move to Stamford Bridge or the Emirates Stadium appears unlikely at this stage, though, given the fact that both clubs have eyes on a number of alternative strikers ahead of the summer transfer window.
