‘New Thierry Henry’ Spurs’ top summer transfer target

Monaco’s impressive young striker Anthony Martial remains Spurs’ major transfer target for this summer, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

The Lilywhites are believed to be looking at a new attacker to ease the goalscoring burden on Harry Kane, with the England international likely to face a tougher campaign next term now his ‘new kid on the block’ status is gone.

Martial, 19, has emerged as a target in recent times, and now reports claim that the teenager, dubbed the ‘new Thierry Henry’ is the priority at White Hart Lane, even though speculation has cooled in recent weeks.

A pacey attacker who is able to play from wide, the Monaco ace is believed to be seen as a good option by Maurico Pochettino, who was forced to rely on Kane last term with both Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado having been out of form.

The Ligue 1 side are in no hurry to sell their man, but offers of £19m might, reportedly, tempt them.

Meanwhile of the seven stars signed following the exit of Gareth Bale in 2013, the London club are only keen on keeping Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen, leaving Eitenne Capoue, Soldado, Paulinho and Vlad Chirches available.
