Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna, writing on Twitter, has made a Tottenham Hotspur transfer claim involving Bordeaux attacking midfielder Yacine Adli.
The Lowdown: Paratici eyeing Spurs overhaul…
Tottenham’s new managing director has already overseen a plethora of transfer activity since his appointment by chairman Daniel Levy.
The Italian has been tasked with developing Spurs’ on-field sporting operations, making three major summer signings so far in Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil.
Now, Aouna has brought news of another Paratici attacking target in Adli, with an offer on the horizon.
The Latest: Lilywhites offer incoming?
As per the Foot Mercato reporter, writing on Twitter, contact has already been made for Adli as Spurs and Arsenal set their sights on the 21-year-old.
It is also claimed that an offer from the Lilywhites is ‘coming soon’ alongside their north London rivals – with European giants AC Milan having chased the starlet since May.
“Info: As mentioned in May, Milan is very interested in Yacine Adli,” Aouna reported on social media.
“€12m offer + 10% on resale. Bordeaux demands more money. Discussions still ongoing.
“Contact with Arsenal and Tottenham. Offer coming soon.
“Lille is still interested.”
The Verdict: Adli and Gil…
At just 21, Adli has marked himself out as an exciting prospect and one who made a mark for Bordeaux last season.
Starting 25 Ligue 1 matches, the midfield ace notched five assists and completed 1.5 key passes per 90 in the final third (WhoScored) – more than any Spurs player managed in the English top flight bar Son Heung-min.
Depending on the offer from Spurs, they could be in the mix for a highly talented attacking player as Paratici continues to cast his net far and wide.
Having both Gil and Adli in the ranks would offer Nuno two young talents with bags of creativity and plenty of room to grow into future superstars.
