    There's a montage of his contribution vs Chelsea. Got caught in possession a few times but looked full of potential. I trust our current back room team will know all there is to know about him.

    He's not the DM we are screaming out for though. That's if Jose feels we need a specialist in that role or even what we are going to move forwards as.

    Never seen this guy play but he seems to be highlighted for his errors so clearly one for us
    Is he a Bakayaro or a Fabinho

    Thanks Milo. With the lopsided 325 or whatever people like to call it, I had posited the argument that GLC and Tanguy could form an effective two as they have the attributes to do it all. Our midfield looked quite good in that second half against Norwich with a distributional CM (Eriksen) alongside N'Dombele. Neves at Wolves could be ideal imo. Soumare as Dubai says is a ways off being what we need right now as he has too many strong instincts to get forward. Time will tell I guess.

    Tottenham identify French starlet as their January transfer priority


    by Rucker Haringey
    21 minutes ago Follow @RuckerHaringey

    Jose Mourinho is ready to make big changes at Tottenham this month. Purchasing this French starlet could help reshape Spurs’ ailing midfield.

    Revamping the Tottenham midfield is one of Jose Mourinho’s biggest priorities. Predictably, the Portuguese manager can’t wait to get started. That’s why Spurs have already lodged a bid for a young Frenchman they believe has the potential to become a Premier League star.

    According to L’Equipe, Spurs have moved quickly to make a formal bid for 20-year-old midfielder Boubakary Soumare. His solid performance in the midfield for Lille this season have earned him a number of admirers throughout Europe. Mourinho’s right-hand man at Tottenham, Joao Sacramento is particularly fond of the young Frenchman.

    Lille certainly don’t want to lose such a bright, young talent, but they lack the financial might to resist a big offer. It’s unclear just how much Tottenham bid, but it could cost Daniel Levy upwards of £40 million to get this deal done. Spurs fans will understand that their club certainly haven’t opened the bidding anywhere near that figure.

    The question Mourinho needs to ask is whether or not Soumare is ready to make an instant impact in the Premier League. He need look no further than to the trials and tribulations of Tanguy Ndombele in North London to see how a young, French player might lose his way in England. Presumably, Mourinho’s well-placed sources have given him confidence that Soumare has the talent and mental approach to succeed immediately. Otherwise, there’s little reason for Tottenham to make him the object of their first January transfer bid.

    There’s also a significant possibility that Tottenham will issue a number of bids early in the window with the understanding that the offers will only be good for a limited time. That’s not been a strategy used in the past by Spurs, but it is a policy that works well for a manager like Mourinho. He realizes he needs to add instant quality to his squad. He may be looking for upgrades rather than perfection.

    Nonetheless, it’s clear that Tottenham retain a keen interest in Soumare. He’s a player Spurs fans should watch very closely in the coming days. He could be the bedrock of Mourinho’s new midfield.

    Quelle Surprise....

    £40 million would be a very good price to get Soumare for. I hope we aren't going to royally tinkle Lille off with our usual ridiculous low bids. They serve no purpose at all.

    It's a flimflam article, to fill space and get clicks. You or I could've written it in ten minutes from what we know, which is exactly what the author has done. What is the point of even discussing it?

    Never going to happen. Doubt we're even looking at him.

    It allways amazes me that there are some fans who get sucked into transfer flimflam in the papers, same every year.

    Even the byline of Rucker Haringey reads like a pizz take.
