Tottenham & Chelsea battling for Ligue 1 ace

Chelsea and Tottenham are paying close attention to Marseille winger Florian Thauvin, according to reports from The Express.

The French wide-man is currently one of Ligue 1’s most promising youngsters, and has been performing well for his below-par club this term.

Although he is valued highly on the Mediterranean coast, a number of English sides are confident of luring him away in the summer.

Chelsea and Spurs are thought to be the favourites, with both sided having upped their scouting of the 21-year-old in recent weeks.

The duo have been further buoyed by Thauvin’s track record for pushing for big moves.

Only last summer the starlet went on strike at Lille to force his £12.5m Marseille switch – despite having not made a competitive appearance for them after arriving from Bastia – and he may resort to similar tactics to step up to the Premier League.

Manchester United and Arsenal are also said to be keen, and could push for a deal to rival their foes.

Thauvin has already indicated that he is ready to reject interest from Paris Saint-Germain, which may serve to open to door for a move abroad.
