Marseille winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is set to sign for Tottenham after a fee of €13million was agreed between the clubs, according to The Guardian.

The France Under-21 wideman will “complete his move in the coming days” after Spurs were given permission to discuss personal terms with the 21-year-old.  The broadsheet also claim the player will pen a five-year deal with the player set for a medial in the next couple of days.

Spurs’ new £10.8millioin recruit has been heavily linked with Everton, while West Ham and Liverpool are also believed to have an interest in the former Nantes man, who moved to Marseille for £1million last summer.

Nkoudou, who is contracted to the Ligue 1 club until 2020, made 41 appearances, scoring 10 goals in all competitions last season and attracted an offer from Hamburg, but Mauricio Pochettino has decided to make a firm move for the player.

Holland striker Vincent Janssen and Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama have been added to the squad at White Hart Lane, but Pochettino is keen to add more depth to his ranks and Nkoudou is on the verge of becoming his next summer recruit.

The French club are believed to be keen to take Cameroon forward Clinton Njie on loan from Tottenham, although any prospective deal would be separate from the Nkoudou deal.
