Lyon midfielder Jean II Makoun could see January as the time to make his long-awaited exit from the Stade Gerland, and it could be that the box-to-box player joins Tottenham in the forthcoming transfer window.
The energetic Cameroonian midfielder has found game-time hard to come by since joining the Rhone Valley club and rumours were rife that he could depart in the summer, with Galatasaray forerunners in the race.
No transfer took place, but Makoun has again struggled for regular time on the field this season, though his recent form suggests an improvement in his fortunes.
The interest of Spurs has certainly been piqued and Le Progres has suggested that the London club are closely monitoring the form of the 27-year-old, who could leave for a fee of €10 million (£8.5m). (Goal.com)
One would have thought that Tottenham had more than enough strength in depth at White Hart Lane but Harry Redknapp, forever the tinkerer, is reportedly keen on Jean Makoun who is a very talented midfielder who is equally adept on the attack as he is in defence. The Cameroonian may well be keen on a move to the Premier League after playing his entire professional career in Ligue 1.
The Spurs boss is thought to be looking to trim his squad ahead of any new signings with the likes of Robbie Keane, David Bentley, Jermaine Jenas and Peter Crouch all reportedly available for the right price.
