Bayer Leverkusen striker Eren Derdiyok is the subject of major Premier League interest.

The Sun says Tottenham are battling it out with Newcastle United and Udinese for Derdiyok.

The £7.5million-rated Swiss star, 23, was watched by Spurs scouts in a recent 3-1 win over Wolfsburg and scored with an overhead kick.

He is seen as the perfect replacement for Roman Pavlyuchenko, who looks set to leave in January.
