Tottenham almost signed 23-year-old attacker on a free transfer, now he's just made France's World Cup squad
The Eintracht Frankfurt striker has been on fire in Germany this season, scoring eight goals and providing nine assists in 23 appearances.
Kolo Muani made the switch to Bundesliga over the summer after his contract expired at FC Nantes.
But the striker ended up in Bundesliga and has now been handed a place in France’s 26-man squad for the World Cup.
Tottenham almost signed Kolo Muani
Kolo Muani has officially been named in Didier Deschamps’ squad today after Christopher Nkunku picked up an injury in training.
The Frankfurt man has now replaced the Leipzig forward after a blistering start to the season in Germany.
He had started to show promise in France before making the switch to Bundelisga, having scored 12 goals in Ligue 1 during the 2021-22 campaign.
But he has really taken his game to another level this season and even faced Spurs in the Champions League this year.
Kolo Muani fully deserves his call-up to the France squad after narrowly missing out beforehand.
Spurs have found it extremely difficult to find a striker who is willing to play back-up to Harry Kane over the past few years.
Fernando Llorente provided decent back-up for the Englishman and stepped up when required, particularly in the Champions League during the 2018-19 campaign.
But Carlos Vinicius didn’t quite manage the same impact during his loan spell in north London.
Spurs may now be regretting not pushing on with their talks to sign Kolo Muani, especially after his brilliant form this season.
