Tottenham mark attacking midfielder as ‘top priority’ – want to sign him by next week

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur have identified several attacking talents for this transfer window, with a keen focus on Rennes winger Desire Doue for a potential summer move.

Journalist Kostas Lianos reports that the Lilywhites aim to finalise Doue’s signing as soon as next week.

According to him, the player is a ‘top priority’ for Tottenham who want to sign him by ‘next week’.

However, Spurs faces stiff competition from top clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain, all vying for the 19-year-old’s signature.

Doue has made a significant impact in Ligue 1, earning recognition as one of the most promising talents in Europe.

Known for his versatility, the youngster primarily plays as an attacking midfielder but can also operate on either wing or as a forward. His acceleration, pace, and excellent dribbling make him an offensive force to be reckoned with.

In March this year, Doue made his debut for the France Olympic football team, scoring two goals in a friendly against Cote d’Ivoire, further highlighting his potential.

Tottenham are determined to secure Doue’s services, viewing him as a crucial addition to their squad. The teenager has progressed remarkably within Rennes’ youth academy, joining at the age of five and now standing out in the senior team.

Last season, he made 31 appearances in Ligue 1, scoring four goals and providing five assists in 17 starts.

With two years remaining on his contract, which he extended last August, Doue’s current market value stands at €30 million.

Tottenham are prepared to invest a similar amount to bring this young talent to North London, enhancing their attacking options.
