According to The Telegraph, Tottenham are eager to sign 19-year-old Monaco forward Anthony Martial.

Despite early indications, as per France Football, suggesting a £18.2 million deal had been agreed between the two clubs, fresh reports have emerged suggesting that negotiations are still continuing.

The 19-year-old ranks highly on the list of potential signings at White Hart Lane this season, with Mauricio Pochettino in the market for a striker who can relieve the goal-scoring burden from youngster Harry Kane.
