WANTAWAY Bournemouth striker Josh King has been linked with a move to Serie A side Torino which could scupper Spurs plans.

Joe Mourinho is desperate for a genuine back-up to Harry Kane and has been expected to make a move for the former Blackburn Rovers striker - but now the Italian giants could jump to the front of the queue.

The Norwegian international could be available for as little as £10million following the Cherries relegation from the Premier League.

King, who only scored three goals in 56 appearances for Rovers before swapping East Lancs for the South Coast, did not play in Bournemouth's 1-0 win over Norwich City on Sunday.

WEST Brom have set their sights on Huddersfield Town's £18m-rated striker Karlan Grant to boost their attacking options.

The Premier League new boys are looking to sign the 23-year-old on a season long-loan with a view to buy.

Grant scored 19 times for the Terriers last season and his arrival could see former Burnley striker Charlie Austin and Kenneth Zohore move out of the Hawthorns.

EVERTON are confident they can sign Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey for £25m.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move back to the Premier League all summer and the Toffees appear to be in pole position.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side have had a fine start to the 2020/21 campaign and he sees Godfrey as the player to add strength in depth to his defence.

WATFORD have completed the double signing of William Troost-Ekong and Djibril Touré.

Nigerian defender Troost-Ekong is expected to immediately challenge for a first team place while 17-year-old Toure - who has been tracked by several clubs - is considered to be one for the future.

Troost-Ekong, who has played 42 times for his country, has signed from Serie A side Udinese after spells in Bursaspor in Turkey having previously played in Belgium, Norway and the Netherlands.

GERMAN giants Borussia Dortmund have joined the race for in-demand Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr.

With Liverpool and Manchester United also having expressed an interest in the Senegal international, Dortmund have now apparently joined the race and could see him as a replacement for Jadon Sancho who has been continually linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Liverpool's link with the £45m-rated star has cooled since signing Diogo Jota from Wolves but the Molineux club, along with Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are monitoring the situation.

The 22-year-old scored six goals in 30 Premier League appearances for the Hornets last season after his £25m move from Rennes last year.
