Monaco are on the brink of completing the signing of Estudiantes forward Guido Carrillo amid speculation suggesting Tottenham Hotspur have tabled an offer for Anthony Martial.
According to France Football, Tottenham made an offer of £18.1m ($29m) for 19-year-old Martial earlier in June, only for Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim to later insist the France Under-21 international is one of the few players who will not be allowed to leave this summer.
Amid Tottenham's interest in the player who struck nine Ligue 1 goals for the club last season, Monaco have sought to bolster their attacking options, agreeing a deal to sign 24-year-old Carillo. Argentine giants Estudiantes released a press release on 21 June explaining an agreement has been met with Monaco that will see the player move to Europe for a fee of €8.8m, with personal terms also agreed between club and player.
His arrival in Monte Carlo will spark fresh speculation over Martial's future, with Tottenham reportedly desperate to bolster their striking options. While Harry Kane struck 31 goals in all competitions during the 2014-15 season, Mauricio Pochettino's other strikers Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado mustered just six goals between them.
Martial enjoyed an impressive season with Monaco in Ligue 1 while also impressing in their own European campaign. But with the club having secured a place in the play-off stage of the Champions League again next season, they have made it clear the 19-year-old is indispensable to their long-term plans.
"I know that anything can happen," Jardim told L'Equipe. "I would like things to be fixed as soon as possible.
"With [Monaco CEO] Vadim [Vasilyev] and sporting director Luis [Campos], it is pretty clear. Bernardo Silva and Martial will remain, so will [Nabil] Dirar, [Danijel] Subasic, [Andrea] Raggi, Elderson [Echiejile] and Jeremy [Toulalan]. All others can leave for economic reasons."
