Tottenham Hotspur winger meets up with former teammate... and fans want him to recruit.
On the first day of Tottenham Hotspur's tour to the US, winger Kevin-Georges N'Koudou was joined by a rival and former teammate.
He and Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi made a beeline for each other as the close pals met up in LA.
Batshuayi is currently on holiday after featuring in Belgium's World Cup squad.
The two players previously starred alongside each other for Marseille and remain pals despite being competitors at Premier League level.
Tottenham were linked with signing Batshuayi before he joined Chelsea in 2016 for a £33 million fee.
The Evening Standard even reported that former head of recruitment Paul Mitchell quit in disillusionment at Tottenham's refusal to push ahead with the transfer.
Now Spurs fans have been joking that N'Koudou may be trying to recruit him to Spurs...
- sam.thompson1999 See you soon ? We ain’t signing him are we
- chu.boi.nafi Cheeky bit of recruitment from you, @gknkoudou ? #COYS
- chris_g_wood6 Get him to spurs
- joedecampi Looks like he needs a top, give him one of the Spurs ones and return the favour
Batshuayi has had a difficult time since moving to Chelsea, failing to win over Antonio Conte.
He scored regularly on loan at Borussia Dortmund last season before his spell was cut short due to injury, and he now has a fresh start under new boss Maurizio Sarri.
Tottenham would surely love to get their hands on him at this point after swinging and missing on strikers Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente, but it is unlikely Chelsea would sell to their rivals.
