Tottenham are interested in signing Lille midfielder Yves Bissouma this summer, according to Sky sources.
The 21-year-old Mali international is also a target for Schalke, who need to replace Bayern Munich-bound Leon Goretzka, and French side Monaco and the article also credits Everton with interest
The article says Spurs have been tracking Bissouma throughout the season as they scout for a long-term replacement for Mousa Dembele, whose future at the club is uncertain.But they have also been monitoring Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure, RB Salzburg’s Amadou Heidara and Internazionale’s Geoffrey Kondogbia, who has been on loan at Valencia.
The article goes on to say that the club’s transfer plans will not be finalised until the outcome of talks between manager Mauricio Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy – the first round of which are understood to have gone well.
It adds that Spurs’ priorities for the window remain a new central-midfielder, another forward to play behind Harry Kane, and a left back.
Everton’s interest in Bissouma was thought to have been held by ex-head of recruitment Steve Walsh before he was sacked along with manager Sam Allardyce last week.
