Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the Inter midfielder this summer.

According to The Sun, Geoffrey Kondogbia is interesting Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The France international has, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, asked to leave Inter Milan but it remains to be seen where he winds up, if he goes.

And The Sun claims that Tottenham are on "red alert" by the latest development as Mauricio Pochettino weighs up a swoop for the 24-year-old, who cost £25 million two years ago.

The former Monaco man made headlines last week by scoring a bizarre 40-yard own goal in a pre-season friendly against Chelsea.

Spurs are the only Premier League side yet to make any sort of signing this summer and it would appear as if the speculation over Kondogbia isn't enough to stem the tide of increasing frustration within the fanbase as the new league season creeps closer.

Kondogbia is a decent talent but central midfield should not be a priority for Tottenham at the moment, when Pochettino has the likes of Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele.

There are other areas of the squad which need immediate strengthening - like, say, up front - and bringing in more competition for the trio seems like a waste of time at the moment.
