Georges-Kevin Nkoudou could be perfect Celtic replacement, as Scott Sinclair is linked with exit

The Frenchman is set to be sold by Tottenham this summer following a miserable three years.

Tottenham will consider offers for 12 members of their bloated squad this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

Given the quality of players on the reported list, some of Europe’s biggest clubs will be queuing outside Spurs’ new stadium ready and waiting.

One man who is on the list is Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, who is currently struggling to get in Monaco’s team during a loan spell.

The Frenchman has proved a real flop since signing for Spurs from Marseille for £9 million (BBC Sport) in 2016.

The 24-year-old has been unable to hold down a regular place under Mauricio Pochettino, playing just 26 games, scoring one goal.

News that Spurs want to offload should alert Celtic towards such availability.

 

Just because he hasn’t cut the mustard in the Premier League doesn’t mean can’t do it elsewhere.

The Scottish Premiership is completely different and his pace and ability should make him a coup north of the border.

If anything he looks an ideal replacement for Scott Sinclair.

The Scottish Sun reported last month that the winger was uncertain over his Celtic Park future.

Sinclair is now 30 and if no deal is forthcoming then he will leave on a free transfer.

Nkoudou is six years younger than the ex-Aston Villa man making him a better proposition for the future.

Celtic have Oliver Burke and Tim Weah in attack just now, but they will both return to their parent clubs this summer.

Of all the players on the list of players set to be shown the exit at Spurs, the Frenchman seems the most likely to be offloaded on the cheap.

The ex-Marseille man has all the potential to set the SPL alight and he could represent a superb long-term replacement for Sinclair.
