Enner Valencia latest: Ecuador's World Cup star linked with Spurs, Newcastle and Everton
Striker has starred in the tournament with all three of Ecuador's goals
Sunday 22 June 2014
One of the stars of the World Cup is being chased by a trio of Premier League clubs, according to reports.
Enner Valencia has scored all three of Ecuador's goals in the tournament so far, including a match-winning double in the victory against Honduras.
His performances have left Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle leading the race for his signature, according to the Daily Express.
The slight striker plays for Mexican Premier Division club Pachuca, where he has enjoyed a prolific spell since moving in January.
After joining from Ecuador's Emelec, where he only enjoyed one season in double figures, Valencia has been outstanding, scoring 18 goals in just 23 matches.
Pachuca's vice-president Andres Vassi has admitted it will be hard to hold on to the strier if a big offer comes in.
"Enner Valencia's value increases every day. We don't know if he will stay, it will be hard given the offers we have received," he told Mexican ESPN.
"The options that a great player at this level gets are to be taken into account. But for now he has to keep doing things right.
"No doubt it would hurt us to let Enner Valencia go, but we are realistic about his quality."
