Tottenham Hotspur fans are desperate to see Daniel Levy make a move for Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, after his agent’s comments last night.

Martial’s agent, Philippe Lamboley, told RMC Sport that his client wanted to leave United this summer.

He said: “After thinking about all the factors and possibilities, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United.

”There are lots of factors, and right now it's too early to talk about them.

"The league is not the most important issue. Anthony simply wants to play, rediscover the pleasure of football and the rapport with the coach will be crucial."

The quotes have sparked a large number of Spurs fans to urge the club to make a move for the French forward, with many feeling that he is making a come-and-get-me plea to Pochettino. 

Tottenham have been heavily linked with Martial, with the north London side believed to be near the front of the queue for the foward.

The Telegraph have suggested that Martial would be interested in joining Spurs.

And now is surely Tottenham’s best chance of landing the 22-year-old, if Mauricio Pochettino really does want him.

Martial’s agent’s comments have put United under a significant amount of pressure, and Tottenham would be negotiating from a position of power now.

United have previously been reluctant to sell to their rivals, but Football.London claim that a bid of around £60 million could be enough to persuade them to part company with the former Monaco forward
