Tottenham handed clearance to sign attacker for £66m fee

Tottenham Hotspur have been given the chance to sign failed Liverpool transfer target Nabil Fekir, based on a report by The Sun.

Jurgen Klopp was largely thought to be on the brink of agreeing a deal for the France international, but the transfer failed to be completed even after the player had chosen his shirt number.

Interestingly though, Lyon still want to make a profit through the sale of Fekir after making him available for transfer again.

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.
