According to Le10Sport, Tottenham Hotspur are making a late push to try and sign AS Monaco's Thomas Lemar.

Lemar is one of Europe's most wanted talents after an impressive season last year which saw him score 14 times and provide 14 assists.

Liverpool yesterday moved ahead in the race for the winger, with BBC Sport reporting they were ready to make a club record £60 million bid for the France international.

Monaco have resisted approaches for Lemar all summer including from Tottenham's rivals Arsenal.

The Ligue 1 side are busy bringing in their own targets including Stevan Jovetic, and could be tempted into a late sale at the right price.

Spurs have broken their own transfer record once this summer to sign Davinson Sanchez from Ajax. To sign Lemar they will have to do so again.
