Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on Nabil Fekir.
Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a move for Nabil Fekir, according to French newspaper Le Parisien.
He is not the only Lyon star to be linked to Spurs, with Tanguy Ndombele a repeated target ever since L’Equipe claimed the North London side had a bid rejected last summer.
Fekir is an attacking midfielder who would potentially replace Christian Eriksen, who has just one year remaining on his deal at the club.
He was part of France’s World Cup winning squad last summer, although featured in a limited role.
He came close to a move to Liverpool a year ago, with BBC Sport reporting a £53 million fee was agreed, before a deal fell through.
This season he scored 12 goals and provided nine assists, which was actually a step back on his 21 goals and nine assists in 2017/18.
At 25, potentially his best years are still ahead of him. Here is a look at how Tottenham fans reacted to a potential move…
100m to Lyon should easily cover him and Ndombele— TrickTrick (@TrickTrick85) May 15, 2019
Would better option than wasting millions on Bale!!!— Adrian (@adrianstixs) May 15, 2019
Would prefer Depay, scores loads of goals, lightening quick, skillful, works hard too, plus has prem experience— Darren (@mackyd78) May 15, 2019
Fekir such a great footballer, but sceptical to if he can take the pl-tempo…if he can hang on to the tempo he be good, if it doesn’t hurt him injury-wise— O (@o_joaboas93) May 6, 2019
