Report: French and PL clubs are all looking at Spurs youngster this summer

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Pape Matar Sarr has emerged as a target for French side Marseille, while a number of Premier League clubs are also thought to be keen on securing a summer move.

Sarr joined Tottenham in the summer of 2021 from Metz, but spent the 2021/22 season back on loan with his former club.

Despite strong rumours that he would depart again last summer, Sarr remained in North London.

It has been a difficult season for the 20-year-old however, who has made just 14 appearances for the Spurs first team this year, most of which have come as a bit-part substitute (Transfermarkt).

The promising midfielder has been linked with a move to Italy in the past, with Salernitana thought to be among the front runners for his signature (CalcioMercato).

With the summer transfer window fast approaching, speculation over Sarr’s future at Tottenham is once again building up and the latest report from Foot Mercato suggests a move back to France could be on the cards for the Senegalese starlet.

Marseille are thought to be in the market for a “reinforcement” in the midfield area, and Sarr is a player who “particularly appeals” to the hierarchy at the French club.

The report describes Sarr’s time at Tottenham as being “complicated,” as he has had to “settle for crumbs” when it come to first-team opportunities.

However, it is thought the player has a “hunger” to succeed at Spurs and is “very happy to evolve” in England.

Whether that be with Spurs or not, remains to be seen. It is believed Sarr is also being monitored by a number of Premier League clubs.

I would totally understand if Sarr decided to leave Spurs this summer as he has never been given a chance to perform here.

That said, I really hope we keep hold of him and give him more first-team opportunities next year.
