Tottenham plotting move for Mohamed Salah

The Chelsea winger spent the 2nd half of last season at Fiorentina

Tottenham are eyeing an ambitious move for out of favour Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah this summer.

Chelsea loaned Salah out on January transfer deadline day to Fiorentina, with Juan Cuadrado going the other way on a permanent deal.

The Egypt international impressed in Serie A, scoring nine goals in 26 games, including a stunning individual effort against Juventus in the Coppa Italia.

And now it is being reported that Tottenham will make a bid for the 23 year old, who helped to knock Spurs out of last season’s Europa League, scoring in the second leg.

The previous season, he also played a starring role to eliminate Spurs again, with Swiss side Basel.

Chelsea remain reluctant to sell to a fellow Premier League club

Salah has attracted the attention of a number of top European clubs including Inter Milan, with boss Roberto Mancini expressing his interest in the player.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will fancy his chances of signing Salah, as he has previously said he enjoys a good relationship with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

The pair came up against each other in Spain, with Mourinho in charge of Real Madrid, whilst Pochettino was manager of Espanyol.

Salah seems to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, with Eden Hazard, Willian, Oscar and Cuadrado above him in the pecking order.

Tottenham were also linked with signing Salah in January 2014, before Chelsea snapped him up for £11 million.
