Tottenham are in advance talks with Ligue 1 side Marseille over a loan deal for striker Clinton N’Jie, according to a report.
French publication L’Equipe have claimed that the president of Marseille, Vincent Labrune has told Daniel Levy of his interest in the Cameroon striker.
It is understood that a loan with an option of a permanent deal has been discussed between the two sides in the last hours and the French side are believed to be confident of completing the deal.
N’Jie joined the White Hart lane club last summer in a deal worth £14million, but the 22-year-old has struggled to break into the Premier League side after suffering injuries and mixed form.
Pochettino has also added another forward to his side this summer in the shape of Holland international Vincent Janssen and it is expected that N’Jie has found himself further down the pecking order at the club.
The Cameroon international starred in 14 encounters in all competitions last season, but he failed to find the back of the net in 386 minutes of competitive football and the former Lyon player still has four years left on his current contract.
Levy is also negotiating an incoming deal with Marseille, as the club have agreed a fee of £10.8million for Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, who is set to travel and undergo a medical in the next 48 hours.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Jurgen Locadia has revealed he dreams of following in the footsteps of new Spurs signing Vincent Janssen.
