Report: Tottenham plotting move for Paris Saint-Germain's teenage forward Wilfried Kanga


Tottenham are reportedly keen on Paris Saint-Germain forward Wilfried Kanga.

According to a report from France Football, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to land Paris Saint-Germain teenager Wilfried Kanga.

Spurs have become known for their youth development under manager Mauricio Pochettino, with Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane all starring under the Argentine's guidance.

With other up-and-coming players like Cameron Carter-Vickers and Joshua Onomah also looking to have bright futures at White Hart Lane, Pochettino is building a team for the future - and could yet look to add more young talent to his ranks.

France Football report that Tottenham are keen on Paris Saint-Germain teenage star Wilfried Kanga, who is believed to be out of contract at the end of the season.

Kanga, 18, is described as 'a powerful striker, versatile, adept with both feet', and given that he's an Ivorian Under-20 international, he is also thought to be a huge fan of compatriot Didier Drogba, who was a Premier League star with Chelsea.

It's suggested that Benfica and a host of other French clubs are keen to sign Kanga, who has been playing for PSG in the UEFA Youth League, scoring one goal in six appearances.

Capable of playing out wide or up front, Kanga could be one for the future - and that seems to be Tottenham's key criteria when it comes to signing new players.
