Tottenham Hotspur have been told by Lyon that they will have to fork out at least £15 million in order to prize hot prospect Clinton N'Jie to White Hart Lane.

According to French paper L'Equipe, Lyon are demanding that the London side raise their bid after it was reported the Premier League side made an enquiry for the striker which was deemed unacceptable.

Lyon are at threat of losing several of their stars to the Premier League this season, with Dimitri Payet, their former assist king, having already headed to West Ham, whilst the future of highly coveted striker Alexandre Lacazette remains in doubt.

In a bid to resist, however, the Ligue 1 side are holding firm on their £15 million valuation of N'Jie.

The 21-year-old bagged seven goals and seven assists in a campaign that secured Champions League football for the French club - something that Spurs incidentally cannot fulfil for the player.

However, if Lyon part ways with the much-admired Lacazette it seems highly unlikely that they will also let their highly-rated African go without a much bigger fight.

Spurs, though, are eager to bolster their striking options in order to ease the burden of Harry Kane, with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor seemingly on their way out.

Pochettino has started his clear out with conviction, stripping away a lot of deadwood in midfield and in defence with the forward department next on the list, though it's fast becoming the case that the Argentine needs to spend less time on saving money and more on spending it.
