Tottenham Hotspur appear to be closing in on another signing this evening.
Reports claim that Spurs are set to beat Cardiff City in the race to sign Etienne Capoue from Toulouse. The 25-year-old operates as a central midfielder and has also filled in as a central defender several times for the French club.
Toulouse President Olivier Sadran confirmed the bid by telling RMC Radio that the player “will go to Tottenham.”
A transfer fee of £8.6million has been mentioned for Capoue who will pen a five-year deal, with a medical said to take place tomorrow or Friday.
Many Spurs fans will be assuming that if this deal goes through, the writing will be on the wall for Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone.
