Tottenham reportedly set to battle it out against Manchester United for Belgian international

Tottenham are set to battle Manchester United for the signature of Dries Mertens. The Belgian international has been in superb form this season and has bagged 28 goals from 40 games for club and country.

With Spurs destined to be playing in the Champions League next season while United are still battling for a top four finish, the North London club could be at an advantage.

As Zlatan Ibrahimovic is only likely to be at the Red Devils for at least another season, Jose Mourinho will need to find a new long term solution up front.

Considering that Vincent Janssen has not been particularly impressive, Mauricio Pochettino may also be eyeing another striker to provide competition to Harry Kane.

However Napoli are also looking to keep their star and are willing to pay him a salary of £2.5 million which matches the offers from the Premier League heavyweights. As a result, he may just prefer to stay at the club where he is settled.
