Soumare came through the ranks at Paris Saint-Germain before leaving for Lille in the summer of 2017.

He has made 11 appearances in Ligue 1 this season but all of those have come from the bench.

Spurs scouted the midfielder on Wednesday and were left impressed, according to Foot Mercato.

Juventus were also reportedly watching Soumare during France’s Under-20 friendly match with Argentina and were equally as impressed.

Le10 Sport reported that Newcastle made a deadline day bid in January for the 20-year-old but Lille refused their offer.

The same publication reported that Manchester City made a £22million offer for Soumare last year, but also found the French club unwilling to sell the talented youngster.
