Tottenham's new head of recruitment Paul Mitchell has watched Croatia and Rijeka striker Andrej Kramaric, according to The Mirror.

The report says Mitchell, who joined from Southampton having previously worked with current Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino down on the south coast, travelled to Sevilla to watch Rijeka play Sevilla in Europa League.

Kramaric, 23, failed to score as Sevilla won one-nil to dump the Croatians out of the Europa League.

Premier League interest

The former Dinamo Zagreb striker has scored two goals in four appearances for his country, and was subject of a £7 million bid from Leicester City. Chelsea are also reported to be interested.

Spurs were also linked in the same Daily Mirror report with an interest in Maccabi Tel Aviv forward Eran Zahavi.

More targets

Valued at £1.6million, the Israel international, capped 23 times, has scored 50 goals in 61 games for his club. The 27-year-old has been linked with Burnley, Swansea and West Brom.

Tottenham need a striker with Harry Kane, Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor providing the only options for Pochettino.

Kane has firmly established himself in the starting XI, but Soldado and Adebayor continue to struggle in front of goal and it would not be a surprise if one or both of the strikers left in the next six months.
