Following José Mourinho’s appointment at Tottenham Hotspur, Joao Sacramento and Nuno Santos arrived at the club from Lille to become a part of the Portuguese tactician’s backroom staff.

Spurs are continuing to hunt at the Ligue 1 club, a Le10 Sport’s report from Monday is to be believed.

They stated the English side are ‘very interested’ in Boubakary Soumaré and it was also explained Lille are not certain what they want to do with the 20-year-old in the winter market.

Regional newspaper La Voix du Nord claims six to eight clubs are currently in talks with Lille for the midfielder.

Tottenham get a mention along with Manchester United and it’s explained these two sides are courting him. However, for any potential transfer to take shape, interested clubs need to pay €50-60m for Soumaré.

Lille are open to the idea of allowing the Frenchman to leave in January or agreeing a deal with another club in the winter market and keeping him on loan until the end of the season.
