Tottenham are reportedly weighing up a transfer window move for teenage striker M'Baye Niang, who has been making waves in France.

According to L'Equipe, the north London club are plotting an €8 million offer for the 16-year-old, who is being billed as one of the most exciting young talents in French football.

Niang scored three times in seven appearances for Ligue 1 side Caen last season and has begun to attract interest from a number of high profile clubs both on the continent and in England.

Caen under-19 coach Philippe Tranchant has worked closely with Niang, and is in awe of the talents of the youngster. He said: “M’Baye has huge potential - we’ve never seen a player like him at the club before."

Although the signing of Niang could represent a shrewd acquisition for the future, a greater priority currently for Spurs is the employment of an experienced goalscorer.


Harry Redknapp is after a proven goal-getter to fire Spurs back to the Champions League next season, with the likes of Diego Forlan and Didier Drogba linked with moves to White Hart Lane.

However, the Spurs boss has been told by chairman Daniel Levy that he must trim his squad before significant investment can be made, while Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe have been tipped to leave White Hart Lane.

Meanwhile, Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala have today claimed they have agreed a deal to sign Roman Pavlyuchenko from Spurs, which is likely to free up some transfer funds for Redknapp.
