After two transfer windows of complete inactivity, it looks like Tottenham are set to invest heavily into their squad this summer (Daily Mail).

One of the positions where Spurs are seeking upgrades in the summer looks to be wide forward, as Spurs have been linked with several pacey forwards from across Europe including the likes of Hakim Ziyech (Calcio Mercato), Wilfried Zaha (The Express) and Malcom (Daily Mail).

One other player Spurs are reported to be holding a long-term interest in, is Man Utd wide man Anthony Martial. The Frenchman was linked with a move to Spurs all of last summer, with The Times even reporting that the move was imminent.

However, the move failed to materialise last summer, and despite the issues, he had with Jose Mourinho, the 23-year-old put pen to paper on a new deal with the Red Devils.

After the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer it finally looked like Martial could find his feet at Man Utd but even the Norwegian has reportedly blasted the former Monaco man for his attitude (Daily Mail).

So, it looks as if Martial may be surplus to requirements at Manchester United once again this summer.

However, ESPN UK reports that there is no chance of the 23-year-old leaving Old Trafford this summer as the French forward is said to be one of Joel Glazer’s favourite players.

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that Mourinho and Solksjaer have both complained about Martial’s attitude, certainly indicates that he might be a difficult character to manage.

However, his talent is obvious for all to see and his directness and ability to go past players will certainly bring another element to the Spurs team if he is signed but it looks like the club might have given up on Martial after being rebuffed last summer and are now looking at other options.
