With injuries and suspensions piling up for Tottenham Hotspur, bringing in more transfers this January will be crucial if they are to improve on last season’s 8th-place finish.

The OGC Nice man has established himself as a premier defender in the French top division.

Alongside his tackling ability, the 23-year-old’s passing ability is another trait that Ange Postecoglou could be attracted to. Against FC Metz earlier this season, the French international completed nearly 165 passes in total, averaging almost two passes for every minute of the match.

If the Australian manager could convince him to make a move to the Premier League, the backline of the Lilywhites would have a great combination of offence and defence.
