The 21-year-old signed for Marseille only last summer but his impressive return since, ten goals and five assists in 41 appearances across all competitions, has seen the Lilywhites move for his services.
Indeed, Spurs reportedly agreed a transfer fee with the French club midway through July and N’Koudou is believed to have passed a medical at White Hart Lane – but his move is yet to officially go through.
It’s the same situation for Spurs forward Clinton N’Jie, who is expected to move the other way to the Stade Velodrome.
Something appears to be holding up the deal and in their attempt to spread some light on the situation, La Province claim N’Koudou is waiting in a hotel for his Spurs move to be made official.
In terms of what may be stopping the deal, the French publication speculate a last-minute change of valuations or wage demands.
