Liverpool and Tottenham fighting to secure Ligue 1 ace

spursfansLiverpool and Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are clashing this afternoon, as they debate which club will be successful in luring a top-talent to the Premier League from France.

Talksport state both the Reds and Spurs are keen to bring Lille midfielder Sofiane Boufal to England next year, after being impressed with his performances so far this season.

The 22-year-old only joined Lille from Angers over the summer but has scored four goals in 12 Ligue 1 games so far this season, leading to him already being linked with a big-money move at the end of the season.

Reports state Spurs have been tracking the player since the start of the season and that Liverpool have now declared their interest, although both sides face immense competition in the form of Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG can offer high wages to the talented star and guarantees of Champions League football, whereas the two Premier League sides face a tough task to secure a top-four finish.

Which club needs Boufal more; Liverpool or Tottenham? Let us know in the comments below!
