Tottenham Hotspur are set to make Georges-Kevin N’Koudou their third signing of the summer in the coming days, according to Foot-sur 7 via the print edition of L’Equipe.

The report claims that a 13 million euro (£10.9 million) deal has been agreed for the 21-year-old and that the move to Spurs will be finalised next week.

Hamburg matched Tottenham’s offer, according to the report, but the player has opted for White Hart Lane instead.

N’Koudou only joined Marseille from Nantes last summer but his performances last season attracted attention across Europe and with Marseille’s need to raise funds, it appears his stay will be a short one.

Recent reports – by the likes of the Mirror – have suggested that Mauricio Pochettino is targeting a pacey winger as his final addition this summer and the Marseille man certainly fits the bill.

N’Koudou is a rapid wide man with an eye for goal – he managed 10 goals and five assists in 38 appearances last season – but he remains undoubtedly a raw prospect.

If the deal goes through, it is a strikingly similar one to that of Clinton N’Jie’s last year and could call into question the futures of a few of Tottenham’s current attacking crop.
