Tottenham transfer news: £10.8m deal agreed for flying winger; medical expected within 48 hours

Posted by

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly agreed a £10.8m deal to make Marseille winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou their third signing of the summer.

The Guardian reports that the 21-year-old will fly to London within the next 48 hours to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms with Spurs.

Nkoudou will pen a five-year contract at White Hart Lane after speaking to manager Mauricio Pochettino on the phone last week, according to The Guardian.

He would become Tottenham’s third signing of the summer after midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton and striker Vincent Janssen from AZ.

The Guardian claims that Spurs were tracking Lille youngster Sofiane Boufal before deciding Nkoudou would be their attacking midfield signing of choice.

The France Under-21 international joined Marseille from Nantes last summer and scored 10 goals and supplied four assists in all competitions last term.

Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham United had all previously scouted Nkoudou, The Guardian understands. But now he seems to be Spurs bound.

The Guardian adds that Clinton N’Jie could join Marseille on loan with a view to a permanent deal, but this deal is completely separate to the Nkoudou one.
