Tottenham look set for a transfer blow, with attacking target Keita Balde closing in on a €30million move to Monaco.

The Senegalese forward has reportedly reached an agreement to join the French champions and, according to Calciomercato, is currently in Monte Carlo undergoing a medical ahead of his move.

Tottenham had been vying with Inter Milan and Juventus to land the 22-year-old but will now have to turn their attentions elsewhere before the close of the transfer window on Thursday.

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has been linked with a move to Mauricio Pochettino’s men, but he is being talked about as a potential makeweight in Monaco star Thomas Lemar’s proposed switch to Anfield.

Monaco, meanwhile, have also brought Stevan Jovetic from Inter as they prepare for Kylian Mbappe’s €150million switch to French rivals PSG.
