Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar’s future is still wrapped up in uncertainty, according to a report.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window, and it appears that there is a small chance that deal could happen.
According to TMW, as reported by Sport Witness, Babacar’s agent Mino Raiola held a meeting with Fiorentina’s general manager Andrea Rogg earlier this week, but they could not settle on an agreement over a new contract.
Babacar’s current deal with the Italian club runs out in June 2016, and it is clear that his camp wants a new (and maybe) improved deal.
It has been reported that Raiola will hold further talks with Fiorentina in the coming days in order to reach a solution.
The youngster has been in decent form for the Viola so far this season, scoring four goals and creating seven chances in 12 Serie A appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 64%.
Babacar is one for the future and could take some time to adapt to the Premier League, but he appears to have sparked the interest of Tottenham.
Although anything can happen in January, given that Babacar’s deal runs out in 2016 and contract talks take time, it is very likely that Tottenham will have to wait until the summer if indeed they are interested.
However, if Spurs fail to sign a striker that they are looking for soon, then they could be forced to make a late bid for Babacar.
