Sunderland Linked With Senegalese Striker

Gus Poyet has been linked with a move for Moussa Sow of Fenerbahce.

In what seems to have become a transfer window tradition, Sunderland have been tenuously linked with Fenerbahce's Senegalese striker Moussa Sow.

According to reports in Turkey, Sow is looking to leave the Turkish giants with his sights set on the Premier League. The reports claims Sunderland, as well as Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur are all interested in the Senegal international but will face competition from Russian clubs CSKA Moscow and Locomotiv Moscow.

Tottenham are mentioned as the front runners for his signature, with an apparent bid of just over £11m on the table, an offer the board of Fenerbahce are currently mulling over.

The 28-year-old striker has had a successful time in Turkey after joining Fenerbahce from French club Lille for €10m in January 2012. After scoring 8 goals in 14 games in the remainder of the 2011-12 season, Sow went on to hit 19 in 54 games in all competitions during 2012-13 season and 16 in 33 last season.

Although Sow has a good goalscoring record and would seem a good fit for the Premier League, it's unlikely Sunderland would be genuinely interested at the prices quoted, particularly when they will have to finance quite a large overhaul with so many players leaving the club.
