Report: Tottenham and Aston Villa-linked winger set to join Ligue 1 club Marseille

Marseille Velodrome

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is being targeted by the Ligue 1 giants.

Three Premier League teams have been linked with the signature of Nantes winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

It was reported earlier in the month by mercato365 that the trio of Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and newly promoted AFC Bournemouth are all keen on snapping up the 20-year-old attacker for next season.

The report claimed that they were willing to pay up to €2.5 million to bring the French-Cameroonian talent in to the club.

Tottenham are in need of new attacking options. Tottenham are struggling for wide-options, with the majority of their attacking options centrally based such as Erik Lamela, Christian Erkisen and Nacer Chadli.

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood always has his ear to the ground for top young talent and with Scott Sinclair coming to the end of his loan spell and Joe Cole out of contract, another attacking option would not go amiss.

Bournemouth, in the meanwhile, are simply looking for top quality additions to their side before launching their first Premier League survival bid.

However, all three will have a battle on their hands - as Ligue 1 side Marseille will prove to be serious opposition.

It is reported by 20 Minutes in France that the attacker could be on his way to Marseille for a fee in the region of €1.5 million.

Nantes are said to be signing Nicolaj Thomsen from Aalborg as a replacement for the youngster who looks certain to be on his way out of Nantes at this point in time.

However, it does not look like the Premier League will be his destination.
