The highly rated 21-year-old could seal the move to Spurs, for a fee believed to be in the region of 12million euros (£8.2m), after claiming he is ready for a new challenge.
"I want a change - I have come to an age where I want to progress and see something else," he said on French sports radio station RMC-Infos on Tuesday. "The English championship really interests me. I want to play in this league. Tottenham are a very good club, who want to do something."
