Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic is attracting interest from Premier League duo Tottenham and West Ham, according to reports (via The Daily Star).

The Croatian international, who has scored 28 goals in 72 games for his country, only moved to the Italian giants last year, but the emergence of Paulo Dybala and the €90 million signing of Gonzalo Higuain could mean that Mandzukic is a surplus to requirements at the Juventus Stadium.

The 30-year-old scored 13 goals in 36 games last season to help Massimiliano Allegri’s side win the domestic treble (Serie A, the Supercoppa Italiana, and the Coppa Italia) for the second successive year.

However, the striker may look for a move in January, with Tottenham and West Ham touted as potential destinations for the former Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich forward.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could really do with some more firepower after seeing his side net just 15 times in the league so far this season, which is the least of any side in the top six.

Harry Kane has been a big miss during his spell on the sidelines, with summer signing Vincent Janssen struggling to make the necessary impact in the early stages of his spell in English football.

Slaven Bilic’s Hammers are also struggling for goals, having scored just 11 goals in their opening 11 league games.

The East London club are heavily reliant on Michail Antonio and Dimitri Payet to get their goals, as none of the strikers at the London Stadium have netted so far this season.

Undoubtedly, if Mandzukic is available, there will be interest in the proven striker in January, and he could make a move to the Premier League.
