Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Marseille ace Matteo Guendouzi

Tottenham Hotspur want to sign Marseille midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, reports French journalist Mohamed Toubache.

The France international is also on the radar of Newcastle United and Aston Villa, while West Ham United want him too.

The Villans are favourites in the race for Guendouzi, with manager Unai Emery and his former teammate
Boubacar Kamara key factors.

However, Spurs will look to pip them and the Magpies to his services.

Marseille want €32 million (including bonuses) for Guendouzi, and suitors will need to meet his asking price to have a chance of landing him.

The 24-year-old spent two seasons in the Premier League with Arsenal before leaving on loan in 2020.

He spent a season at Hertha Berlin before joining Marseille, where he has impressed over the last two years.

Players rarely cross the north London divide, but a move to Tottenham is something Guendonzi could cherish.

He left Arsenal in controversial circumstances after falling out with manager Mikel Arteta.

A return to London could appeal to the Frenchman if Spurs can convince him of their project.

Marseille are one point away from qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Guendonzi may only be willing to leave them for a club playing in Europe’s elite competition, giving top-four hopefuls Newcastle a chance.

Spurs could miss out entirely on Europe, with Villa only behind them on goal difference in the race for the Europa Conference League spot.

Failure to qualify for the competition will deal a blow to their chances of landing the former Gunners man and other top targets.
