According to reports from La Provence, Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur are weighing up a move for Marseille attacker Georges-Kévin N'Koudou.

It is clear that Tottenham Hotspur are currently in the market to sign a new striker this summer but Spurs have faced frustration in their chase for top targets Michy Batshuayi and Vincent Janssen.

Revelations have been made that Batshuayi is currently on the verge of signing for rivals Chelsea on a £33 million deal (Sky Sports) while Tottenham’s £16.5 million bid for Vincent Janssen has been rejected (The Guardian).

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham will raise their offer for Janssen and reports emerging out of France claim that Spurs are currently weighing up other attacking targets as well in the form of Marseille youngster Georges-Kévin N'Koudou.

N'Koudou is a promising striker who joined Marseille from Nantes at the start of last season and managed to impress at the Stade Velodrome, scoring 10 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions despite being handed limited playing time.

The French Under-21 international’s exploits seem to have caught the attention of Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and now claims have been made by La Provence that the Premier League side are keen on signing the 21-year-old this summer.

The report adds that although N'Koudou joined Marseille for only £1.25 million less than 12 months ago, the French side will demand at least £8 million from interested parties such as Tottenham.
