It has been a very dry and uneventful summer for Tottenham in terms of transfers but it seems like Daniel Levy is now desperate to change things. Mauricio Pochettino has identified the man on top of his shopping list as Celta Vigo’s midfield ace Pape Cheikh Diop.
They could face fierce competition from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon, who are looking for a long term replacement to fill Corentin Tolisso’s boots and reports suggest that Diop has a £25m release clause.
The 20 year old’s latest Instagram activity will cause a bit of excitement in the Spurs camp as Diop was spotted following Tottenham’s official Instagram account recently.
This can be a big sign that ensures the Spanish U19 international’s personal preference towards a move to Spurs over Lyon.
Spurs face Newcastle away at St. James’ Park in their opening game of the Premier League on Sunday and they will hope to start the season on a positive note.
