According to Get French Football News, Marseille winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou will arrive in London on Tuesday and pen a five-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur.

Having already boosted their defensive midfield options by signing Victor Wanyama from Southampton and added striker AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen, Tottenham are now on the verge of adding a new winger.

Having seen Son Heung-min and Nacer Chadli serve up some inconsistent displays last season, manager Mauricio Pochettino has been pursuing a direct winger with pace - and appears to have found one.

Various reports over the weekend suggested that Marseille winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou was edging towards a move to White Hart Lane, and Get French Football News now report that Nkoudou will travel over to London on Tuesday in order to finish off his move.

Nkoudou, 21, joined Marseille from Nantes last summer having been regarded as one of the brightest young French talents around, and he showed flashes of his ability by scoring five goals and notching three assists in Ligue 1 last season.

Now, Nkoudou is heading to London, and will allegedly pen a five-year contract with Tottenham, who clearly have belief that he can be a star of the future by securing him until 2021.

A pacey wide man who has been capped 12 times by France at various youth levels, Nkoudou will add speed and dynamism to Tottenham's options out wide, but will cast some doubts over the futures of players like Chadli and Son, with Erik Lamela surely set to stay after an impressive campaign.

Do you think Nkoudou will be a good signing for Spurs?
