Former Bordeaux forward, Christophe Dugarry, has asked M’Baye Niang to stay quiet over his future and let his agent worry about finding a new club.

Niang has enjoyed a fantastic season for Rennes, netting fifteen goals in all competitions before the campaign ended prematurely due to the COVID-19 pandemic (

L’Equipe (via GFFN) reported at the start of this month that Tottenham were interested in signing the Senegal international this summer.

However, Spurs face competition from an unlikely source for the striker’s signature, with Niang also said to be in talks with Qatari giants, Al-Duhail (Foot Mercato).

Meanwhile, Marseille have also been suggested as potential suitors for the striker’s signature this summer (Le Parisian).

Dugarry, who was part of France’s World Cup-winning squad in 1998, has asked Niang to keep his thoughts regarding a transfer to himself and warned the former AC Milan man that he would now end up looking silly if he failed to secure a move away from Rennes.

The former striker told RMC Sport: “The advice I want to give him to the kid (Niang) is shut up!

“He doesn’t have to comment on that (his interest in a move away). Let your agent work. Be quiet.

“I think he’s doing it wrong, stop expressing yourself all the time. Because if you end up staying at Rennes, you will have your tail between your legs and you will pass for a moron.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I believe Niang could potentially be a fabulous addition for us given his ability to make a nuisance of himself and hold the ball up. However, after the experiences he had at Milan, I doubt if the 25-year-old would be keen to come to Spurs and play second fiddle to Kane.
