Spurs are eyeing Pavard as one of the possible replacements for Alderweireld this summer

Pavard has been a vital part of the France side that reached their third World Cup final this summer, with the 22-year-old playing almost every minute for Les Bleus.

The defender even showcased his shooting ability, as he scored one of the best goals of the tournament against Argentina, rifling home a fantastic 25-yard volley.

During this campaign just gone, Pavard played a big part in helping Stuttgart secure a seventh-placed finish in the Bundesliga, and the European football that comes with it.

Pavard has certainly been one of the shining stars at this summer’s World Cup, with France hoping he can keep up this level of performances for their final against Croatia on Sunday.
