Tottenham Hotspur target Laurent Depoitre's agent has admitted that his client will not refuse if given an opportunity to play in the Premier League in the future. The Belgian striker, who plays in his homeland with Gent, has been a target for Mauricio Pochettino, as the Argentine manager looks for forward options to support Harry Kane.
According to the Daily Mail, the north London club have been keeping tabs on the forward, who has been impressive for the Belgian club in recent seasons. Depoitre played a key role in Gent winning the Belgian Pro League last season. The forward scored 13 goals in the previous campaign and has already bagged six in ten games thus far this campaign.
Pochettino is keen to bring in additional cover for Harry Kane, who is the only recognised striker in the squad currently. Moreover, the England international striker has failed to recapture last season's form thus far and has just one goal in eight Premier League games. The 26-year-old Belgian's impressive performances saw him receive a call-up to the national team and he even scored on debut in Belgium's 4-1 win over Andorra on Sunday (11 October).
"I believe Laurent would be a fantastic player in the Premier League," Rene Vijt [Depoitre's agent] said, as quoted by the Mirror.
"He is happy in Gent, but try to find me a player that does not want to play in the Premier League," the Belgium international's representative added.
Meanwhile, according to the Independent, Spurs are also monitoring Depoitre's teammate Moses Simon, who was also a key player in the Belgian side's title triumph last season. The 20-year-old, who is mainly a left winger, but can also operate on the right-wing or behind the striker, was also a target for Premier League rivals Liverpool before he decided to train with Eredivisie club Ajax.
