Report: Tottenham close in on promising nine-goal teenager
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.
Martial signed for Monaco no less than a season ago, signing a contract until 2018. He made 35 league appearances and scored nine goals this season, while featuring seven times in the Champions League.
He showed his promise in the last-16 stage with an impressive display against Spurs’ North London rivals Arsenal. He provided an assist in the in the first leg at the Emirates as the French outfit recorded a 3-1 victory.
Martial would represent a substantial buy for the Lilywhites, who are likely to spend a fair amount of money over the summer months. With Pochettino given the opportunity to do so, he will quickly put his own stamp on this Spurs side.
