Tottenham Open Talks Over Deal For £25m Attacker As N’Koudou Move Stalls

By on August 4, 2016

The summer transfer window is in full swing so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Tottenham are linked with Sofiane Boufal…

Tottenham have opened talks over a potential deal to sign Lille attacker Sofiane Boufal after their proposed move for Georges-Kevin N’koudou stalled, according to France Football.

Spurs have been strongly linked with a move for N’Koudou this summer and Sky Sports News claimed last month that the French under-21 winger had undergone his medical in London ahead of a £10.8m move from Marseille.

However, the proposed transfer has gone quiet amid rumours that a 10% sell-on fee due to former club Nantes may be complicating the deal and it looks like Mauricio Pochettino may have lined-up an alternative in-case the N’Koudou move collapses entirely.

France Football claim that Spurs have now renewed their interest in Sofiane Boufal and opened talks over a potential deal to sign the highly-rated Lille attacker this summer.

The French news outlet suggests that Pochettino has held a long-term interest in the 22-year-old and is now exploring a possible deal despite the fact that Boufal is currently on the sidelines nursing a meniscus injury that’s expected to keep him out for another few weeks.

N’Koudou: Spurs deal stalls

The Moroccan international only joined Lille in January 2015 but he enjoyed an excellent campaign last season with his 11 goals in 29 games helping the club to a fifth-placed finish in Ligue 1.

The Express reported in late June that Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea were all tracking Boufal so Spurs could yet face competition if one of their Premier League rivals decide to enter the running for his signature.

However, any club looking to sign the talented winger better be prepared to dig deep as the newspaper suggests that it will take an offer of £25m to persuade Lille to cash-in on the player this summer.
