Troy Deeney has emerged as a shock £5million target for Tottenham. Spurs are weighing up a move for Watford’s powerful striker with Jermain Defoe set to follow Clint Dempsey out of White Hart Lane.

West Ham, who are among the bidders for Defoe, and Fulham are also showing a keen interest in the 25-year-old target man.

Deeney only a signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract at Watford in March, preventing one of the most prolific strikers in the Championship last season from walking away as a free agent this summer.

The former Walsall player, who moved to Vicarage Road for £500,000 three years ago, scored 20 goals despite missing the first month of the season following his release prison after serving a third of a 10-month sentence for affray.

He hit the injury-time winner that sent Watford through to the Play-off final at Wembley, although Gianfranco Zola’s team eventually lost out to Crystal Palace for a place in the Premier League.

Deeney has continued his rich vein of scoring this season with four goals in his first two games, including a hat-trick in Saturday’s 6-1 win over Bournemouth.
