Spurs are said to have their eye on promising 18-year-old french defender Sikou Niakate.

Ligue 2 side Valenciennes managed to convince the teenage defender to sign a professional contract with the club at the end of November, despite interest from Swiss side FC Basel and Belgian outfit Zulte Waregem.

Instead Niakate penned a deal running until the summer of 2021, however according to French media outlet Foot Mercato Valenciennes may find themselves tested for the youngster soon.

The article adds that Spurs are fully aware of the defender’s potential and also scouted Niakate this weekend with the youngster in action for Valenciennes’ reserve side.

It goes on to say he has made 13 League appearances for Valenciennes this season, while also turning out on three occasions in the Coupe de la Ligue.

The article adds that Spurs may make an approach for the 18-year-old either this month but it’s more likely to happen in the summer transfer window.
