TOTTENHAM and Newcastle have made last-minute checks on PSV’s Belgian winger Johan Bakayoko.

Both clubs sent their top men to watch Bakayoko, 20, against Rangers in their Champions League qualifier last week.

Bakayoko has been linked with Liverpool, Everton and even Burnley.

But their Premier League rivals are now taking a bigger interest in the last week of the window.

He will be checked again in the return leg where defeat for the Dutch side could make them more open to a sale.

Bakayoko is currently valued in the £25-30million range.

Newcastle could do with improving their options out wide and Spurs are always keen on young improvers.

Bakayoko bagged two assists in PSV's 2-2 draw with Rangers and has scored seven goals for the Eredivisie team.

Tottenham still have a heavy interest in adding firepower, with talks for £50m-rated Brennan Johnson reportedly set to get underway this week.

Spurs put in a composed performance as they beat Bournemouth 2-0 on yesterday.
