According to a report from France Football, Tottenham Hotspur have renewed contact with Lille winger Sofiane Boufal.

In other news, the Daily Mail claims Tottenham have not made an initial bid for Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez despite earlier claims from Spanish newspaper Sport that a £1.7million bid had been rejected.

Despite the contrasting reports, the Mail claims Pochettino is a big fan of the 21-year-old Spaniard and has been monitoring his progress for some time.

While a move may not happen in the short term, he could be viewed as a long-term successor to current Spurs number one Hugo Lloris.
