English Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspurare is interested in West Bromwich Albion's Egyptian defender Ahmed Hegazi, ESPN reported on Thursday.

"West Ham United and Leicester City are also keeping tabs on Hegazi as they look to improve their squads for next season," ESPN also said.

West Brom, who have been relegated from the Premier League this season, landed the Egyptian international from Ahly on loan in the Summer of 2017, before making the move permanent five months later.

The 27-year old towering defender is the second Egyptian player to drop from England's top flight, as international winger Ramadan Sobhi's Stoke City was relegated earlier.
