Tottenham Hotspur may have received a potential transfer boost, with one of their alleged targets apparently now going cheaper.
According to French outlet Foot Mercato, Toulouse are now willing to accept a lower fee for their midfielder Ibrahim Sangare.
The Ligue 2 side would now accept an offer in the region of €8 million to €10 million/£7 million to £9 million for the star of their engine room, who only has a year remaining on his contract with the club.
It follows a report from GFFN last month that claimed the club wanted €15 million to €20 million/£13.3 million to £18 million and that Tottenham had an ‘intense interest’ in the player.
Foot Mercato state that there is ‘envy across the channel’, suggesting at least one English team is interested in the 22-year-old.
It is highly unlikely Sangare will be staying put at Toulouse in light of his new price, especially given the club have just suffered relegation.
TBR’s View – A possible bargain for Tottenham
Tottenham are currently stacked for options in midfield, but things could easily change.
Tanguy Ndombele is being linked with a move away, with The Daily Mail reporting the Frenchman has been transfer-listed.
Youngster Oliver Skipp has left to join Norwich City on loan, and Eric Dier finished the 2019/20 season playing as a central defender where he looked decent.
Tottenham would need to sell a foreign player to bring Sangare in, but he could potentially make for a very astute signing.
Jose Mourinho historically likes tall and physical players, and 6ft 3in enforcer Sangare is most definitely that.
