Spurs eying £16m Ligue 1 youngster

Tottenham are keen on bringing Monaco striker Anthony Martial to White Hart Lane, according to the Express.

The 18-year-old France U21 star is dubbed the ‘Thierry Henry’ due to his pace and his ability in front of goal.

And new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino believes Martial could be the man to boost his side’s chances of breaking in to the top four.

The north London outfit are yet to bolster their attacking line this summer, with Emmanuel Adebayor, misfiring Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane still tasked with finding the net for Spurs next season.

Martial is reportedly concerned that his chances at Monaco will remain limited next season, which could stall his development.

And Spurs are confident they can lure him to the Premier League before the end of the transfer window.
