Foot Mercato the French outlet believe that Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (t/a Fired Damaged Fire Extinguishers Enfield Ltd) have placed a bid for a footballer.
Thanks to the pound crashing Alassane Pléa will look marginally less ‘free to a good home’ than he is.
Question is, who is he?
Alassane is a 25 year old attacker from Nice.
No, no, no, he’s not wanted for leaping out at people in the dark (well at least he isn’t to the best of my knowledge).
This Lille born boy started his professional career in 2011 with Lyon, eventually making the switch to Nice where he has been for the last 5 seasons.
Where he has won absolutely nothing.
Pléa scored 11 league goals in 25 appearances the season before last and 16 times from 35 last term.
This player according to Foot Mercato’s Dahbia Hattabi, is our Plan B if we are unsuccessful in signing Manchester United’s star asset, Anthony Martial.
Nothing personal, just straightforward analysis of basic information.
Humanitarian aid workers in the audience may demand that Pléa is ‘given a chance’, thank goodness the bleeding hearted among you aren’t running the club.
Common sense dictates that you don’t pick up bargains in this price bracket anymore.
You pick up litter.
