Tottenham closing in on highly-rated 18-year-old midfielder

By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham is close to completing the transfer of Pape Matar Sarr from Metz as they continue their summer signing drive.

The 18-year-old only broke into the Ligue 1 side’s first team last season, but he took to the competition like a duck to water and has continued to impress.

He has had interest from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea in this transfer window.

However, RMC as reported by Sun Sports, claims that Tottenham is the club that has won the race for his signature.

The report claims that the Lilywhites have reached an agreement with their French counterpart over a possible £12-13million deal.

The report further claims that he would likely remain in France on loan for a season to continue his development.

Tottenham has more than enough midfield options at the moment and the Senegal international will hardly play if he moves to London immediately.

They could offload some of their current options before this transfer window closes with the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele now out of the first-team plans at the club.

Fabio Paratici has done an impressive job, just a month after becoming the director of football at Tottenham. If he can keep Harry Kane at the club beyond this season, it would be a major win.
