M’Baye Niang is not convinced by a proposal from Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the summer transfer window, per L’Equipe via Sport Witness.
The report states that Spurs have repeatedly been linked with a move for the Rennes striker, and had made an offer as the market’s opening nears.
The 25-year-old, who can play as a striker and as a winger, has scored 15 goals in all competitions this season, across 36 games, but he is said to be unconvinced by the prospect of playing second fiddle to Harry Kane.
The England captain, of course, is the undisputed first-choice in north London and, as a result, Niang could seek a move elsewhere.
Rennes want €20 million (£17.9m) to allow Niang to leave and he is said to be considering a move to either Marseille or Qatari club Al-Duhail.
Marseille’s finances, though, are not said to be in the best state, meaning he may be forced to move to Qatar.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
Niang needs to seriously think about this.
A move to Qatar, with all due respect to the clubs who play there, is effectively the same as deliberately placing one’s self in limbo.
A switch to the Premier League, surely, would be a preferable option, regardless of whether he has to sit on the bench for a few games or not.
If Spurs have come in with an offer, Niang really needs to reconsider and make that move.
It’s better than Al-Duhail, after all.
