Tottenham star attracting European interest

Benoit Assou-EkottoTottenham full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto is attracting attention from Fenerbahce, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Cameroonian endured an injury hit 2012/13 season, limiting his chances of progression after an impressive Premier League campaign under Harry Redknapp.

Current Spurs chief Andre Villas-Boas is believed to be a big fan of the 29-year-old, but is aware that he must sell players during what could be a decisive summer for the London club.

Fenerbahce are keen to take advantage of this, and could test Tottenham’s willingness to keep the left-back with an offer in the coming weeks.

With the White Hart Lane outfit chasing a number of targets in the transfer market, AVB could be tempted to sell in order to raise funds and free up space in his squad.

Assou-Ekotto himself could also be tempted by a move, having spent over six years in north London.

An offer of around £6million is thought to be enough to force through a move, and the Fenerbahce may well stump up the cash.

Spurs managed to cope without Assou-Ekotto for much of last season, with Jan Vertonghen proving to be a capable alternative.

The Turkish giants were linked with a move for Arsenal flop Andre Santos during January, but were unable to agree a deal with the Gunners.

Should Benoit Assou-Ekotto be allowed to leave? Or does he still have a role to play at White Hart Lane.
