Tottenham close on Georges

Marseille winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is set to undergo a medical at Tottenham but Clinton Njie is not keen on a loan move in the other direction. It is understood Spurs have agreed a 10.8million deal for Nkoudou, who was one of the rising star

s in Ligue 1 last s

eason. Marseilles attempt to take Njie on loan is independent of the Nkoudou transfer, but the French club have indicated they will not allow their man to leave until a suitable replacement is found. Spurs are expected to complete the deal shortly That has left Tottenham in an awkward position given they had

planned to keep Njie but manager Mauricio Pochettino is desperate to integrate new signings as early as possible this summer. Pochettino wants his players to complete a full pre-season programme, which he considers crucial to the teams style of play. Njie, however, is eager to prove himself in the Premier League after only moving to White Hart Lane from Lyon 11 months ago, with his debut campaign in England heavily

disrupted by injury. The Cameroon forward made 13 appearances for Spurs until D

ecember, when a knee injury curtailed his progress and meant he played only one game for his club in 2016. Clinton NJie is not keen on a move to Marseille (Image: Michael Regan) If Marseille can pe


uade Njie to change his mind or identify an alternative replacement, the transfer of 21-year-old Nkoudou could be finalised this week. Nkoudou, who can play on either flank, scored 10 goals in 36 appearances last term and is known for his pace, penetration and exce

llent work ethic. He would become Tottenhams third signing of the summer, following Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen, and take the clubs spending in this transfer window to alm2020管家婆八肖版图 ost 40million. poll loadingWill Georges-Kevin Nkoudou be a success at Tottenham?500+ VOTES SO FARYESNO
