Tottenham ready to make late move for £20m-rated Premier League attacker

Posted by

Tottenham are ready to make a late move for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, according to the Daily Star.

White Hart Lane boss Mauricio Pochettino has seen his North London side struggle to make an impact in the final third and has made recent moves in the transfer market to address the situation.

Spurs have signed Clinton N’Jie and Heung-Min Son, from Lyon and Bayer Leverkusen respectively, and Pochettino will hope the pair can offer forward Harry Kane some support up front.

The England international scored 31 goals in all competitions last season but is yet to net this term and consequently Tottenham have failed to secure a Premier League win thus far this season.

Conversely, Alan Pardew has seen his Eagles side start the season in spectacular fashion with Crystal Palace winning three of their opening four fixtures, including a superb away win at Chelsea on Saturday.

Yannick Bolasie missed that fixture but is still a player Pardew would be loathe to lose and the Daily Star claim the South London side want £20m for the 26-year-old French-born DR Congo international, a fee that chairman Daniel Levy has thus far failed to meet.

Pochettino has successfully offloaded a raft of under-performing talents this summer, with Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Benjamin Stambouli, Lewis Holtby, Roberto Soldado, Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches having all left for pastures new, leaving space for new additions.
