It has looked for a long time that Tottenham Hotspur were set to sign Georges-Kevin N’Koudou from Marseille this summer.

It was reported that Spurs are set to sign the French under-21 international, who had reportedly already passed a medical with the London club, for a fee in the region of £10.95 million – as reported by TF1.

A deal hinged on Tottenham player Clinton N’Jie heading to Marseille on loan – however, it seems neither deal will be happening.

Le Phoceen reported yesterday that the negotiations were over.

So who could Spurs target instead of N’Koudou?

Here are three options…

Rafa Silva – Braga

Just a week ago the Mirror reported that Tottenham were upping their interest in Euro 2016 winner Rafa Silva of Braga.

The 23-year-old winger would reportedly cost around £10 million, so he is certainly in Spurs’ price bracket, and would be a perfect alternative.

Spurs have also been linked with the Lille attacker recently.

The Moroccan international can play in a number of positions and might also come at a good price.

Yacine Brahimi – Porto

The most rounded of the three currently the Algerian would be a fantastic recruit.

A sticking point – Porto. The Portuguese side are notoriously difficult to bargain with and he would not come cheap.
