Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will battle it out to sign Porto striker Moussa Marega in the summer, according to German outlet Bild.
The 25-year-old was loaned out to Primeria Liga rivals Vitoria Guimaraes at the start of the season and he has been in superb form, scoring 10 times so far.

Spurs are chasing a striker after struggling to replace forward Harry Kane who could be back to action in around four weeks.
Liverpool have Roberto Firmino as their first-choice number nine but speculation continues to mount over where Daniel Sturridge’s future lies.
Marega has been linked by the paper to Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy because of his rise from the lower leagues.
The Mali international joined Porto from fellow top-flight club Maritimo in 2016 but prior to that he has been playing in smaller French and Tunisia divisions.
It is reported that Marega has a release clause of £40 million but would cost a lot less if Liverpool or Tottenham were to make an offer for the player.
