One player Pochettino is now interested in bringing to the club is Marseille star Morgan Sanson.

That’s according to France Football, who report that the Argentinian very fond of the 23-year-old and would like to bring him to the Premier League this summer.

However, Spurs will face competition from the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal for his signature, according to the outlet.

Sanson is certainly showing enough potential in Ligue 1 right now to be under consideration for a switch to a top six side in England.
