Tottenham may be successful if they push their interest in Jeremy Clement.
Saint Etienne are open to selling Clement on one condition, if they can find a replacement before the end of the transfer window.
With their interest publicised, it is highly possible Saint Etienne are already considering replacements for if Tottenham submit an offer.
Maxifoot report that the club would cash in on him despite the fact he is a regular starter for the club.
Clement has a contract until 2018, and is a defensive midfielder. He played for Rangers for one season in 2006/07.
The 30-year-old may not be the high profile signing fans crave, but his experience would add much needed balance to a young midfield, essential if they are to have a successful season.
