Tottenham scouts are reportedly keeping a close eye on the performances of Metz wonderkid Boubacar Traore.
The talented 20-year-old is the latest player based in Ligue 1 to catch Spurs’ eye, with Pape Matar Sarr already set to join the club next season, according to the Sun.
Traore looks like he could be another talent worth investing in for Tottenham, who have a decent record when it comes to identifying top young players on the cheap and aiding them in their development.
Of course, things don’t always work out that way, and Tottenham could do well to avoid bringing in another Tanguy Ndombele, who looked an elite prospect in his native France before badly struggling in his time in north London.
Spurs fans will just have to hope the club does its homework here and assesses Traore well before this turns into something more concrete.
Fabio Paratici had a decent transfer record at Juventus but we’re yet to really see the full extent of his expertise at Spurs.
