Spurs looking at Lyon forward

We are supposedly watching Lyon youngster Maxwel Cornet with a view to making a move for the 21-year-old forward.

Cornet has a £7million buy-out clause in his contract and an article says we are keeping close tabs on him, while he is also being watched by German side Borussia Dortmund, according to the report in the Daily Mirror.

The article describes how the young striker has previously played for France Under-21s but has now opted to play for Ivory Coast, where he was born.

It goes on to say that Cornet has made 82 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon, being so young, and he has scored 16 goals for the club. It also adds that he has made his senior international debut for Ivory Coast in 5-0 loss to the Nettherlands in June this year.

Could he be persuaded by Ivory Coast team mate Serge Aurier to link up at Hotspur Way?

Have something to tell us about this article?
