According to French media outlet RMC Sport, Florian Thauvin has emerged as a shock summer transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur.
There is some doubt about whether Thauvin belongs to Newcastle United or Olympique Marseille.
The skillful winger joined Newcastle on a permanent deal in summer 2015 but failed to make an impact in England before he was farmed back out to Marseille on loan in January 2016.
This summer, he rejoined Marseille yet again on another season long loan and many different news outlets are reporting that the deal has become permanent.
However, there has been no official word from either club.
If Marseille are plotting a permanent move for the 24-year-old, they now face competition from Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur, who are trying to hijack the move.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly very keen on the Frenchman and might make a summer move after tracking him for a long time.
Newcastle fans – is Thauvin your player still? What price is he worth? Let us know below…
