Tottenham Hotspur Make Contact to Sign £50 Million Ligue 1 Talent


Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering a move for highly-rated Rennes midfielder Desire Doue, according to TeamTALK. This comes despite recently signing Archie Gray from Leeds United as part of their ongoing squad overhaul.

Manager Ange Postecoglou is receiving backing in the transfer window as Spurs plan a long-term rebuild. While a striker and central defender are seen as priorities, the opportunity to sign Doue has emerged.

The 18-year-old impressed last season for Rennes, scoring four goals and providing six assists. His versatility across midfield and the flanks makes him a valuable prospect for Tottenham’s future.

Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski are currently Spurs’ only consistent attacking threats, with Son approaching his twilight years. Doue could offer much-needed depth and dynamism in the final third.

However, Doue’s Transfermarkt valuation of £27 million is expected to be significantly higher in reality, with reports suggesting closer to £50 million to convince Rennes to sell.

Tottenham may hesitate at this price tag, especially with other areas of the squad arguably needing more immediate investment.
