Top French club Marseille have signed Clinton N’Jie from Tottenham Hotspur and have not given up hope of signing his teammate Moussa Sissoko, according to the Evening Standard.
The Cameroon international was on loan at the Stade Velodrome last season and that deal has been made permanent for a fee reported to be £6 million – but there has been no official confirmation from either team.
N’Jie joined Tottenham from Lyon for what was believed to be £8.3m but his time at White Hart Lane never really got going and after failing to impress in his first campaign in London he was loaned back to France in August last year.
He featured 20 times in all competitions for Marseille in total and scored four goals, with Les Olympiens now completing a permanent deal for the 23-year-old.
It would seem the French side are not finished with Tottenham players just yet either as they have been linked to the signing of Sissoko.
The former Newcastle United midfielder is currently Spurs’ record signing but his first campaign at White Hart Lane failed to hit the required heights and Mauricio Pochettino is seemingly ready to offload the France international.
It appears that Marseille would want to take Sissoko on loan before committing to a longer deal as they did with N’Jie and it remains to be seen whether Tottenham agree to that or whether they would like him off their books in full.
With one and potentially two leaving Tottenham there is room freed up in the squad for Pochettino to strengthen his attacking options, something he has been desperate to do throughout the summer.
Spurs have been linked with a host of creative and forward options in this window but as yet the club has not been able to secure a move for any of them.
