Stuttgart to rival Spurs for Doumbia
Swiss newspaper Blick claims the highly-rated Young Boys hitman is top of the German side’s January shopping list.
Christian Gross was appointed as Stuttgart’s new manager following a disastrous start to the campaign and the ex-Spurs boss is desperate to add reinforcements during the transfer window.
However, it is believed the 21-year-old would favour a move to the Premier League and Doumbia has recently been linked with a move to Tottenham.
The highly-rated Young Boys of Berne hitman – valued at €12 million – took the Swiss top-flight by storm last season and sensationally scored 20 goals despite starting just eight league games.
And as a result, several Italian clubs are also reportedly keen to sign the explosive Ivorian, who is tipped to partner Chelsea front-man Didier Drogba at next summer’s World Cup.
Doumbia has continued his rich vein of goalscoring form with 16 goals in 17 appearances during the current campaign.
