Tottenham fans aren’t too fond of their latest transfer move, as reports claims they are eyeing a swoop for Alassane Plea.
According to Sky Sports, West Ham have tabled a bid for Nice striker Plea, but Newcastle, Fulham and Tottenham are all in the hunt as well.
Nice are understood to want €30m (£26.6m) for the 25 year-old, who scored 21 goals in all competitions last season, including four in European competition.
Plea had an absolutely electric end to the season, scoring ten and adding two assists in his final nine games, and is said to be interested in a move to England.
Valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, the Frenchman scored 16 Ligue 1 goals in 35 Ligue 1 appearances, but he would not dislodge Harry Kane, and fans are bemused about potentially spending £26.6m on a substitute.
Mauricio Pochettino is desperate to find someone who is happy to play second fiddle for Kane, but has the quality to actually offer something when called upon, and fans clearly don’t think Plea can be that player.

Slightly alarming that Spurs are going after a player which is being targeted by three others clubs which are probably going to be fighting relegation next season.
Clear for any supporter of our club that we need two or three real top quality additions to really push the squad.

This is the reason why Tottenham are behind the other top clubs like man city, man utd , Chelsea is that we seem to go for these type of players who keep us playing at the same level but not the next big step

Spot on Ricky. We don’t need punt type signings who ‘may’ enhance the team/squad. We have enough players like that. We need 2 or 3 finished article top quality signings.
