The North London rivalry hits up even in the transfer market as the White Hart lane outfits are looking to have beaten their counterparts at the Emirates to the signature of Lyon’s Clinton N’jie as per the Mirror.
Spurs, who had a horrific outing in their first match of the EPL are desperately looking to add a player to their striking ranks. According to reports, the Cameroonian will undergo medicals at White hart Lane within 48hours. £12m is mooted for the deal to pull through.
In furtherance to the confirmation of Spurs interest, Lyon’s president Jean Michel Aulas revealed that both parties are very close to an agreement.
Spurs have been short in the striking department with Roberto Soldado failing to find any form at all and Emmanuel Adebayor already on the verge of moving away from North London. Therefore, the club is left with only Harry kane as the sole striker to carry the burden of scoring. Should the deal pull through, the Cameroonian will provide backup for the impressive kane.
N’jie converted only 15.9% percent of his chances last season with Lyon, earning him just seven goals in 30appearances.
Giving his record, this shouldn’t bother Arsenal on losing out this player to Tottenham as he looks less potent than all of the Gunners strikers.
It is true that Arsenal are in search of a top-notch striker, N’jie’s calibre is way below the call from Arsenal fans.
