Club president confirms Spurs are ‘interested’ in striker with 32 goals and could make a ‘move soon’

By Mehdi Gokal -

In an interview with RMC Sport, Montpellier president Laurent Nicollin revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a potential move for their young striker, Elye Wahi.

Amidst growing interest from multiple clubs, Wahi’s future remains uncertain as the summer transfer window continues.

Nicollin said:

“There are offers for Wahi, we are waiting for more. We had an offer from Chelsea a week ago. We thanked them, but we refused. We wait.

I’ve had Tottenham who are interested, and they should move soon.

There’s Frankfurt too. The musical chairs game, if Kane leaves Tottenham and/or Kolo Muani from Frankfurt, it will move.”

With Tottenham’s star forward Harry Kane being heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich, much hinges on the outcome of his potential departure.

Today, Bayern made their final bid for Kane, offering €100 million plus add-ons for the English striker. It is rumored to be their last attempt to secure his signature.

Tottenham now face a crucial decision on whether to accept Bayern’s bid for their talismanic striker or risk losing him on a free next summer.

Should Kane leave, the London club will likely ramp up their pursuit of Wahi to bolster their attacking options.

The 20-year-old French-Ivorian forward has been attracting attention from various European clubs, with Benfica also expressing interest in his services.

However, Montpellier is in no rush to finalize Wahi’s transfer and is open to keeping him if the right offer doesn’t materialize.

Nicollin further explained:

“We’ve also learned that Benfica are interested. We aren’t in a rush. If he stays, he stays, there’s no issue there. It’s a pleasure. We sold Mavididi and likely will Esteve.

Elye has said he wants to leave, we agreed with his agents. We are working together.”

The 20-year-old has scored 32 goals and assisted 9 in 91 appearances for Montpellier

As the transfer saga unfolds, Tottenham fans eagerly await the club’s decision on Kane’s future, which could pave the way for a potential move for Elye Wahi.
