Tottenham are monitoring Lille midfielder Yves Bissouma.
Spurs are watching the 21-year-old as they scout for an eventual replacement for Mousa Dembele.
Dembele’s contract is about to enter its final 18 months and he turns 31 next year.
Bissouma is a Mali international who was the subject of enquiries from Inter Milan in the summer.
Spurs are also monitoring Inter Milan’s Geoffrey Kondogbia, who is on loan at Valencia, and Lorient youngster Matteo Guendouzi.
