Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Anthony Martial, with The Daily Star claiming that the North London outfit are interested in signing the Manchester United forward in the summer transfer window.

United rate Martial at £70 million, but Tottenham will not meet the Red Devils' valuation of the 22-year-old forward, according to the report.

That, though, could mean that Mauricio Pochettino’s side miss out on the France international, with German and European giants Bayern Munich reported to want the youngster.

Bayern are a very wealthy club, and if the German powerhouse are willing to meet United’s valuation of Martial, then it is hard to see Tottenham beat them to the signature of the French forward.

The German giants regularly win the Bundesliga and compete for the Champions League title, and playing with world-class footballers such as Manuel Neuer, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller could appeal to Martial.

With Bayern reportedly holding talks with Martial’s representatives, it seems that Tottenham are losing valuable time.
