Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are amongst the clubs interested in signing CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia, according to the player's agent.
Doumbia has garnered a reputation as a prolific goal scorer outside of Europe's more established leagues, having struck 50 league goals in his two seasons at Swiss outfit Young Boys before scoring 28 in his first season with the Russian Premier League champions following his move to CSKA.
He has continued to enhance his status this season with 13 goals in 15 league games in addition to scoring twice against Manchester City in the Champions League group stages, form which has seen the number of clubs tracking his progress grow.
Reports had previously suggested Newcastle United will turn to the Ivorian should they miss out on the opportunity to sign Loic Remy on a permanent deal this summer, but they will face competition from clubs in Italy, Germany, Turkey and from the Premier League.
"The interest of Galatasaray about Seydou Doumbia? I do not know if it is genuine interest," the striker's agent Malik Arutyunov was quoted as saying by talkSPORT.
"I know that he is followed by Napoli, Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea but I cannot say anymore."
Both Tottenham and Chelsea will be in the market for additional strikers during the summer transfer window after both clubs struggled in that department this season.
After seeing his side's blunt performance in their Champions League quarter final first leg defeat to Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea boss was critical of his striking options who have mustered a meagre 25 goals between them this season.
Reports suggest the Blues boss will oversee a complete overhaul of his current options and dump Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o, Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku with Diego Costa and Mario Mandzukic on his short list of potential new additions.
Tottenham's lack of firepower has been one of the factors behind their uninspiring campaign. The misfiring Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor are the clubs only established strikers with reinforcements likely to be a priority at the end of the season.
