Tottenham are reportedly ahead of Liverpool in the chase for Rennes midfielder Benjamin Bourigeaud, having made a firm enquiry over a €15m deal.

According to a report from Spanish media outlet Estadio Deportivo, Spurs and Liverpool are two of six clubs interested in signing the Rennes ace this summer.

However, the two Premier League sides will have to act first to get their man, with the report adding that Sevilla have already lodged a €12 million (£10.7 million) bid for the 25-year-old.

Estadio Deportivo adds that Rennes are demanding at least €15 million (£13.4 million) for the player, who has previously been linked with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Bourigeaud has scored 21 goals and added 17 assists in 93 appearances in all competitions, all from a central midfield position.

He is being viewed as a potential bench player for both Spurs and Liverpool, especially given that he has only ever played for mid-table Ligue 1 clubs.
