Chelsea ace Eden Hazard will receive a villain's welcome when he steps out at White Hart Lane next season, after ending Tottenham's title challenge in early May.

Yet there will be one Tottenham player who holds him in high regard, providing Georges-Kevin Nkoudou's imminent switch from Marseille is concluded.

The Evening Standard report Nkoudou has agreed personal terms and passed a medical, and he is hoping to be a big success in the Premier League.

Speaking to Goal France back in January, he admitted his aim was to earn a move to a top club, and used Hazard as inspiration.

He said: "I am sure of my qualities. My idea is to build my career example by the example of Eden Hazard.

"I looked at how he built each year in Lille... best young talent, Ligue 1 best player, after, he moved to Chelsea, he has become the player he is.

"I'm an ambitious person. To go higher, you have to be decisive. By doing that, sooner or later I will change status and I'll play in big competitions."

His performances last season saw him net 11 goals for Marseille, and now he is being fast tracked to the Premier League.

At just 21 he has outstanding potential, and if he can go on to follow Hazard's 2014/15 title success and player of the year gongs, he will prove to be one of Tottenham's best ever signings.
