Rumours have been hotting up that Anthony Martial will become a Spurs player this summer.

Martial was criticised by his manager Jose Mourinho for not returning to training in the USA following the birth of his son. The former Monaco man would be a fantastic asset and has a great eye for goal and is happy to provide assists.

Martial, 23 in December, joined Manchester United in September 2015 for a fee of £36 million. The France international can play anywhere across the front line.

Despite having limited playing time last season he still managed to average one goal per two games and one assist every three in the PL. We are crying out for some extra creativity in the final third, all too much we rely on Christian Eriksen and when the Dane is off his game we typically struggle to break down the opposition.

Have a look at some of the reactions from Twitter …
