Spurs expect deal to sign £65,000-a-week forward to be secured

Tottenham are confident of securing the signing of Anthony Martial, based on reports this week.

Having qualified for another season in the Champions League, Spurs know the importance of owning a deeper squad which could see someone else reduce the goal-scoring burden on talisman Harry Kane.

Martial has emerged as the man whom Spurs have seriously been chasing to add to the squad, largely due to his age and undoubted potential.

And based on the new report, Tottenham are confident of securing a deal to sign the Manchester United striker, especially if Toby Alderweireld ends up moving to Old Trafford.

Due to Tottenham’s intentions to save as much money as possible this summer, the club is rather interested in offering a swap deal to land the services of Martial.

Chelsea, who recently sacked Premier League winner Antonio Conte, are also believed to be battling for the signature of the Frenchman, an earner of £65,000-a-week.
