Tottenham Hotspur's move for Marseille star Georges Kevon-N'Koudou has been resurrected after it seemed to have fallen apart following changes in the club hierarchy in recent months. The move seemed off the cards in recent days after the two clubs had a disagreement over the transfer fee following the resignation of chairman Vincent Labrune and the appointment of a new sporting director.
According to Sky Sports, the deal to take the French attacker is back on and it is believed that the clubs are close to agreeing a deal, that will see N'Koudou become Pochettino's third summer signing. Clinton N'Jie, who has failed to play in a single Premier League game since signing for Tottenham last summer, is expected to move the other way on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent transfer.
The Cameroon international has received a work permit to play in France while, the France U21 international has completed his medical and agreed personal terms with the White Hart Lane outfit. The two clubs were said to have agreed a fee said to be around £11m ($14.4m), but following the hierarchy change at the club, the Guardian reported that they were not happy with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy's offer of £4.2m ($5.4m) which would eventually reach £11m.
Meanwhile, another player facing a possible exit from the club is Nabil Bentaleb. The midfielder has been informed that he no longer part of Mauricio Pochettino's plans for the upcoming season and will be offloaded before the end of the transfer window.
According to the Daily Mail, the north London club have received enquiries from Benfica and Lazio from Portugal and Italy respectively, but they are keen on a loan deal. Tottenham, meanwhile, want a permanent solution and are expecting interested clubs to match their valuation said to be around £12m.
