Spurs have been interested in luring midfielder this summer but so far they are losing out on key targets.
Monaco’s Kondogbia completed his move to Inter Milan last month and now another French international Giannelli Imbula of Marseille has snubbed Spurs to sign for Portuguese giants FC Porto.
As per the provided link, Imbula has cost Porto a fee of €20million. The player has finally sealed a 5 year deal with the Primeira Liga club and now has a mammoth release clause of 50 million Euros included in his contract as well.
The 22 year old Les Bleus star is mainly a natural defensive midfielder but is a creative presence in the center and has been compared to Arsenal and France legend Patrick Vieira.
Imbula featured in 39 games for Ligue 1 side last season, scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists as Marseille finished 4th.
Tottenham really need a strong player in midfield who could provide a solid cover in front of the back four. However, the North Londoners must act swiftly or else they will continue to lose targets.
