Tottenham receive greenlight to agree signing of £66m star this summer

Tottenham Hotspur have received a golden opportunity to secure the signing of Nabil Fekir, based on a report by The Sun.

Liverpool were rather the favourites to make a move for the forward, who was reportedly so close to a switch to Anfield that he already had his shirt numbet picked out.

After that failed move by Jurgen Klopp’s side, Lyon have maintained their intentions of selling Fekir this summer to the highest bidder.

Tottenham, along with Prem rivals Chelsea, have been given a clearance to sign the 24-year-old for a fee of £66million since Liverpool were only willing to pay £53million for the player in initial negotiations this summer.

Mauricio Pochettino is looking to freshen his midfield options ahead of a campaign which could potentially see Spurs play at their brand new stadium.

Daniel Levy’s actions for much of the summer so far have indicated that Tottenham are no longer financially limited but it remains to be seen whether Fekir’s £66million fee might be too high of an ask for the club.
