Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly closing in on the signing of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou from Marseille after he arrived in London for a medical on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old scored 14 goals in all competitions last season, and in turn gained interest from around Europe including from north London.
According to L’Equipe, it appears as though Spurs have won the race to sign him in a deal worth £11m, as he arrived in England on Monday ahead of a medical on Tuesday.
Should that pass without incident, Nkoudou is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Premier League outfit, joining Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen as new summer signings with Mauricio Pochettino looking to bolster his squad ahead of the new campaign.
Having seen their title challenge falter in the closing stages of last season before eventually finishing in third place in the Premier League, Spurs will be desperate to build on their success and continue to compete at the top of the table.
In turn, it was imperative that Pochettino acted in the transfer market to add more quality and depth to his squad, with the addition of Champions League fixtures to their schedule also likely to take its toll on the team.
Nevertheless, armed with three top new signings, the Argentine tactician will be confident in his ability to continue to lead the club forward, although it remains to be seen how much of a prominent role Nkoudou is given in his first season in England, provided the deal goes through.
Spurs may well remain active in the market between now and the deadline, but they’ve certainly acted quickly to put important pieces in place during pre-season.
