Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will surely be desperate to bolster his ranks during the transfer window this month, but he will most probably have limited funds available to him with which to do just that.
One particular area where Poch might be looking to strengthen is his forward department, with Lucas Moura currently out injured, and Heung-Min Son set to head away on international duty with South Korea.
The 22-year-old can play on either wing or through the middle, possesses blistering pace, and plays with a certain type of energy and vigour that makes him ideally suited to Pochettino's high-octane setup at Spurs.
Cornet has not been the most prolific of players over the pasty few years, however, chalking up just 33 goals and 13 assists in 150 appearances in all competitions for Lyon, but he has the potential to go on and become a superstar.
Pochettino has demonstrated time and time again that he can get the best out of younger players, and actually help them reach heights they never thought were possible.
The Ivorian is powerfully built, and he seems to have all of the physical attributes required to be a success in the Premier League.
£20 million for a player with the Lyon ace's quality could prove to be a real steal, and Pochettino should not hesitate to bring him to Tottenham this month.
