Tottenham are set to complete their third summer transfer in the form of French forward Georges-Kevin N'Koudou after the Marseille man completed his medical at White Hart Lane. The 21-year-old was at the Spurs training ground completing formalities for a four-year contract and a deal with the player is likely to be announced over the course of this week.
According to Sky Sports, the two clubs are in talks over a possible deal for Cameroon forward Clinton N'Jie, who can move the other way to facilitate the transfer. Spurs are now considering whether to let the forward leave on a permanent transfer, having already agreed a £10.8m ($14m) deal for N'Koudou.
The forward was in Tottenham's sights for a long time, having scouted him while watching Michy Batshuayi who eventually moved to Chelsea this summer. Spurs have already completed a move for AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen and midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton as manager Mauricio Pochettino looks to lead Tottenham to another title challenge in consecutive years.
N'Koudou made 28 appearances last season for Marseille, scoring five goals and assisting three in the league and will be a welcome addition to the Spurs squad that was heavily dependent on Harry Kane's goals last season. Kane scored 25 times for his side and burnt himself out, which affected his performance in the Euros, where he failed to score a single goal.
Meanwhile, Pochettino is happy with new signing Wanyama and revealed that he is excited at the prospect of watching him play next season. The Kenyan will be used in rotation with Eric Dier, who started almost every game for Spurs last season and was involved in the Euros.
"Victor is very happy, excited and very motivated about the new challenge he has here," Pochettino told Tottenham's official website. "We're happy as well because he's an important player and a player who wants the best. We will provide him with the best tools to arrive at the start of the season really fit," he added.
