Martin Terrier, a striker recently linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, has suffered a serious injury on Monday night reports the Evening Standard.

The 25-year-old has been in blistering form for French side Rennes over the last 18 months, contributing 21 goals and seven assists last season (Transfermarkt) and bagging a further 11 already this season (Transfermarkt).

Last week, Media Foot reported that Tottenham and Manchester United were in contact with Terrier’s agent to sound out a possible move to England. The same outlet then added Liverpool and Arsenal’s name into the mix, as the prolific striker looked destined to play in the Premier League.

Media Foot also described Terrier as ‘one of the best strikers in Ligue 1 for two seasons,’ and it sounded like the potential move to the English game could have opened up some doors for Terrier in terms of an international call-up, too.

Sadly, that all may be on hold now, as the player suffered what sounds like a pretty serious injury playing for Rennes against Nice in Ligue 1 on Monday evening.

His manager, Bruno Genesio said to reporters (via Evening Standard): “For the moment, his knee has swelled well but we don’t have a diagnosis. It’s too early to have a reliable one.

“We didn’t talk too much about that at the break, but all the players went to see Martin in the physio’s room to comfort him. A twisted knee that swells up is never a very good sign, but for the moment I can’t tell you more.”

What a shame this is for Martin Terrier, who was in the form of his life of late. Hopefully, his injury isn’t as serious as it first appears and he can get back on the pitch as soon as possible. Regardless, you would imagine any interest from Premier League clubs will now be on hold until the summer at least.
