According to a fresh report out of France, a big Tottenham Hotspur transfer update has come to light involving in-form Rennes striker Martin Terrier.
The Lowdown: Striker on the cards?
Lilywhites manager Antonio Conte has reportedly earmarked the signing of a striker as one of six transfer targets for the summer window, according to reports.
However, as per fresh reports from elsewhere, Ligue 1 could also be a fruitful source to back Conte with upgrades in the centre-forward position.
The Latest: Paratici makes offer…
According to Foot Mercato, the north-Londoners, and by extension their transfer director Paratici, have already made a ‘proposal’ to sign Terrier, who is currently enjoying a fine 2021/2022 campaign.
Currently at the ‘top of his game’, Rennes’ star has been nominated for the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award as Spurs now ‘like him a lot’.
The Premier League top-four chasers are apparently ‘very fond’ of Terrier and have been ‘seduced’ by his form with the forward blowing them away this season.
The Verdict: Get it done?
Scoring 21 goals in 36 league appearances, it is little wonder Tottenham are enticed and have made a pre-summer move.
Valued at £14.4 million by Transfermarkt, he could also come as a slightly cheaper option to the likes of Inter star Martinez to provide Harry Kane with some competition.
That being said, it remains to be seen whether Rennes charge more for their pivotal attacker given he is under contract there until 2o25.
