Aymen Abdennour could be on his way to England with Tottenham reportedly interested in signing the defender.

It is reported by The Mirror that a £5million move to north London is on the cards with Spurs keen to sign the Tunisian this summer.

Out of favour

The out-of-favour defender, 25, has not been featuring for French side Monaco on a regular basis, having started only nine games in Ligue 1 this season due to combination of injury, competition for places and his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Abdennour has made only 21 appearances since the start of the 2013/14 season scoring one goal in the process. But he did make a rare start in the 3-1 victory against Arsenal in the Champions League midweek and produced a fine performance. 

Do Spurs need him?

Spurs side already have a number of centre-backs at their disposal, with the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Federico Fazio, just to name a few. With Vlad ChiricheČ™ and club captain Younes Kaboul rarely getting a game it would seem hard to think how Tottenham would accommodate for the Tunisian.

When the defender was asked about a move to Spurs he said: "Why not? Right now I have to be patient.

"Things will happen naturally. I am not going to put any pressure on myself because I am very happy at Monaco."

Abdennour initially joined free-spending Monaco on loan from fellow Ligue 1 side Toulouse in the January 2014 window, the switch was made permanent last summer by signing a four-year contract.

But could he be off just a year after making his move a permanent one?
