Tottenham Hotspur linked attacker Paul Mukairu scored as Antalyaspor walloped Menemenspor 4-1 in a pre season friendly on Sunday, reports.

Antalyaspor coach, Ersun Yanal, may want to sell Paul Mukairu for around £4.3 million next summer with Tottenham Hotspur having previously been linked with the player, Score Nigeria have claimed.

The 21-year-old was on loan at Anderlecht last season and managed four goals and four assists in all competitions.

The Mirror reported earlier this year (21/02, page 67) that Spurs were confident of sealing a deal for the Nigerian.

Paul Mukairu will play a key role under coach Ersun Yanal next season in the Turkish Super Lig.

Anderlecht wanted to sign the winger on a permanent basis after he caught the eye on loan but their financial problems rendered the deal impossible.

Mukairu is a very raw talent that, if nurtured right, could prove this deal to be a bargain in years to come.
