Premier League title challengers Tottenham are eyeing up a summer move for Burnley striker Andre Gray, according to The Mirror.

The 25-year-old has netted eight goals in 26 Premier League appearances to help Sean Dyche’s side to 12th in the top-flight, and eight points clear of safety with just six games of the campaign remaining.

Gray was instrumental in helping the Clarets achieve promotion to the top tier last season, scoring 23 goals in 41 Championship matches, and he has continued to show his predatory instincts in the box at the highest level.

And that has reportedly attracted interest from Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham, who are looking at Gray as a potential replacement for struggling Dutch forward Vincent Janssen.

The 22-year-old helped change the game for Spurs in their 3-1 victory over Swansea last week and subsequently earned a rare league start against Watford on Saturday, only to be replaced on the hour after missing a glorious opportunity in the first half at White Hart Lane.

And Gray looks to be his replacement in North London, and given that the Burnley man only has a year left on his current deal at Turf Moor, you’d expect there to be genuine interest in his services this summer.

Star striker Harry Kane replaced Janssen on Saturday and once again looks set to lead the line, but it is when he is unavailable when questions are asked of Spurs.

Yet it appears that Pochettino thinks Gray could be the answer to that problem.
