Tottenham Hotspur are keen on France under-20 winger Allan Saint-Maximin, according to French broadcaster TF1.

Saint-Maximin is contracted to AS Monaco until 2020 but spent last season on loan at Bastia.

He benefited from playing regularly at Bastia, featuring in 34 games for the Ligue 1 side last season.

Saint-Maximin played last season on both wings, as a central attacking midfielder and even was selected for a match as centre-forward.

He scored three goals and provided three assists for the struggling side, who were relegated after finishing bottom of Ligue 1, winning eight games out of 38.

Lille are also interested in Saint-Maximin, report TF1, along with Marseille.

Monaco signed him from Saint Etienne in 2015, before loaning him to German side Hannover and then Bastia last season.

Tottenham fans may prefer the club make a move for a more established player this summer, after the disappointing transitions Clinton N'Jie and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou have had to English football.

Both players had even better records than Saint-Maximin in Ligue 1 before they made their moves.

Saint-Maximin was part of France's World Cup under-20 squad, and has two goals in seven appearances for his country at that level.
