Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Anthony Martial, with BBC Sport reporting that the North London outfit are keen on signing the Manchester United forward in the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old has been on the books of United since the summer of 2015 and is a hugely talented player, but the youngster is not guaranteed a place in the Red Devils’ starting lineup.

Martial has started just 18 matches in the Premier League in each of the past two seasons for Jose Mourinho’s, and the France international’s agent Philippe Lamboley has told RMC Sport that the forward wants to leave United.

Tottenham could do with a player of Martial’s quality. The Frenchman has pace, is a goalscorer, and is also able to play out wide.

United fans, though, do not want the 22-year-old to leave Old Trafford in the summer transfer window, and have urged the club to hand him a new contract.

In response to United agreeing a new contract with 21-year-old goalkeeper Dean Henderson, fans of the Premier League and European giants have urged the club on Twitter to extend Martial's deal - and this may interest Tottenham supporters, that fans are not giving up on him and this could possibly prompt a change of heart.
