Impending Tottenham signing Georges-Kevin N’Koudou has been listed in Uefa’s top 30 players of the 2015/16 season.
Football Insider revealed on Sunday night that Tottenham had agreed personal terms with the attacker and he will fly to London to complete a five-year deal.
Spurs fans will be encouraged by the pedigree of Frenchman N’Koudou, who has been rewarded for his performances last season with a place on Uefa’s list alongside the world’s elite players.
He was only one of three Ligue 1 players included alongside Blaise Matuidi and Manchester United’s new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
N’Koudou finished 30th on the list and his potential team-mates Hugo Loris and Toby Alderweireld were also there.
However, forward Harry Kane was a surprise omission from Uefa’s top 30 despite his stunning Premier League campaign with 25 league goals last season.
Spurs have had a bid accepted from Marseille of £10.8million for winger N’Koudou and he is set to become the club’s third transfer of the summer, following the £12million signing of Victor Wanyama and the addition of Vincent Janssen for £18.8million.
The 21-year-old joined Marseille from Nantes during last summer and the winger proved to be one of the signings of the Ligue 1 campaign, scoring 10 goals and providing 5 assists in 41 matches in all competitions.
In other Tottenham transfer news, they face competition from Pep Guardiola for £15m wonderkid.
