Both Premier League giants are keen to sign the prolific Senegal international this summer, and you can see why they so interested in the marksman.
Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are set to go head to head for the signature of in-form Fenerbahce front man Moussa Sow at the end of this season.

Moussa Sow’s name consistently crops up whenever attackers are mentioned as possible new arrivals in the Premier League, and he has been one of the hottest properties of the last few transfer windows.
The 27-year-old Senegal international has been consistently finding the back of the net for both club and country ever since joining Ligue 1 outfit Lille three years ago, and it was in the north of France that the striker really started to attract attention.
It was Sow’s 25 Ligue 1 goals that helped propel minnows Lille OSC to their first French title for 57 years in 2011, and the impressive strike rate propelled the player to the head of the French scoring charts that season too – as well as eight in 19 internationals for his country.
Sow is a powerful, hard running, pacey attacker with a proven ability to find the target in whatever country he is playing, and even though he is contracted to Fenerbahce until 2016, it is understood that any interested suitors would be able to lure the player away from Istanbul this summer for as little as £10.5m, which in this day and age is a bargain if ever there was one.
And the front man, who also has an impressive fitness record to boot, can either lead the line all by himself, or if needed can also play up front with a partner, and so would suit both Liverpool and Tottenham’s preferred formations.
Still, it appears that the Reds are in pole position to sign Sow in the summer, for the 27 year-old has spoken out about the prospect of moving to Merseyside.
“There is a lot of talk. I’m happy at Fenerbahçe and don’t think about leaving,” he told Turkish TV channel TRT – as quoted by the Daily Star above.
“However, everyone knows I want to play in the Premier League one day.
“If Liverpool made a formal offer, if my club accepted I would be happy to play in England.”
