Tottenham has made an enquiry over the signing of Lille’s star, Jonathan Ikone, but they are not alone.
The Lilywhites will be looking to strengthen the team ahead of next season with Jose Mourinho hoping to end their long wait for a trophy.
The competition for places in the league table and cup competitions will be hot next season, with all the other top teams looking in good shape to compete.
Spurs have some of the best players in the league, but they know that they will need quality alternatives too and Ikone can provide that, but they would need to beat Newcastle United to his signature.
The former PSG trainee has developed very well since he joined Lille, and he was one of the players who helped them to the Champions League group stages this season.
They narrowly missed out of qualifying for the competition next season, and this might be his last season with them.
According to Telefoot journalist, Julien Maynard, the Lilywhites are looking to sign the forward.
He Tweeted: “Tottenham and Newcastle have inquired with LOSC about the situation of Jonathan Ikoné. Under contract until 2023, the young international could leave France this summer in the event of a significant offer. #Mercato
It is always interesting when a journalist goes out on a limb to make a specific claim, it tends to mean that there is something in what they are reporting.
