According to Foot Mercato, the north London outfit have been impressed by the 6ft 1in striker’s performances in Ligue 2 this term and are ready to pounce in time for the summer transfer window.

The France under-19 international caught the eye against England last month, when he got his name on the scoresheet in a 2-1 victory. It came hot on the heels of an impressive brace for the national side, during a 2-0 triumph over Denmark.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is almost certain to increase the club’s attacking options in the coming months following £26m flop Roberto Soldado’s disappointing two-year stint at White Hart Lane and Emmanuel Adebayor’s frosty relationship with the hierarchy.

He is unlikely to need to break the bank for a raw, unestablished talent like Guirassy, but the addition of such an exciting prospect to the ranks would undoubtedly excite supporters.

The teenager would either provide back-up for first-choice hitman Harry Kane or, perhaps more likely depending on the club’s other transfer dealings this summer, he could join a lower-league side on loan.
