Tottenham are considering a swoop to sign Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga next year, according to a report by Football London, with Jose Mourinho keen to continue his squad rebuilding process.
The teenager sensation has already collected three caps for the France senior team and at a tender 17-years-old, he looks set for a really bright future in the game.
Rennes are in the Champions League this season and have been drawn in a group alongside Chelsea, Sevilla and Krasnodar.
The Ligue 1 outfit value the youngster at £54 million and Tottenham are unlikely to the only club interested in securing his services during upcoming transfer windows.
Despite his tender years, he has played 50 times for the first-team in France, including seven games during the current campaign.
Tottenham were on the wrong end of a superb comeback by West Ham at the weekend with Mourinho’s team forced to settle for a point despite leading 3-0 at the interval.
With that in mind, the Tottenham boss will know his team is by no means the finished article and will strive for more signings in the future.
Camavinga would certainly be an eye-catching signing on the basis of his potential and the fact that his quality has already seen him pick up three international caps.
TBR View – Tottenham signing Camavinga could be game-changing
Spurs didn’t have a great deal of joy with the signing of talented midfielder Gedson Fernandes and that deal looks like one to write off.
As a result, Tottenham should try and pull out the stops with their next central midfield addition – and Camaving would certainly do that.
The 17-year-old is strong in the tackle, has a lovely array of passing and is also mature beyond his years.
The valuation of £54 million is a lot for a teenager, of course, but it could prove a sound investment for the future.
