Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are discussing whether this up and coming Frenchman would be a good gamble for Spurs after the Mirror revealed the north London club are expected to make a move Marseille’s midfielder Florian Thauvin.
Spurs had an enquiry rejected by the French giants back in January and this is no surprise as the 22-year-old is considered as one of the rising stars in Ligue 1.
This has not put off Pochettino and his backroom staff as they have continued to scout the player.
Tottenham are now gaining confidence with this target after encouraging news came out France, suggesting Marseille are ready to offload the star in order to raise funds.
Thuavin is a wide player, who can also operate behind the striker, and Pochettino could be looking to add more depth in these areas, as he could also take the weight off of Christian Erikson’s shoulders.
But they will have to fight off interest from Valencia who are also interested in the young prospect.
