After the failure of Vincent Janssen to make any sufficient impact in the Tottenham team, the club has been on the lookout for a new forward according to several transfer rumours. However, Spurs already have a striker who is on their books but currently plays for Marseille. Striker Clinton N’Jie came to the North London outfit from Lyon last summer in a deal worth around £8 million. The Cameroonian was expected to be the backup for Harry Kane, and he ended up making a similar sort of start to his Spurs career. Even though he made 14 appearances in all competitions last season, N’Jie failed to get off the mark.

Mauricio Pochettino wasted no time in sending the player out on loan to Marseille in the summer. The French outfit have the option to buy the player for £7 million if they are impressed with his quality. However, it seems that N’Jie retains the faith of being a Spurs player in the future. When asked about the question of his future, N’Jie claimed that he has not held any discussions with the London outfit. The 23-year-old says that discussions will take place with him and Mauricio Pochettino only at the end of the season. According to Squawka, he said:

“All I needed was time to play and I passed a year in Tottenham, not an easy one. So when the criticism started we had a discussion. We were just looking for the best for me.

“For the moment I am in Marseille and happy to be here, and at the end of this season we will decide what is best for me.”

Tottenham’s signing of the N’Jie was a big gamble in the first place, as the Cameroonian had managed only eight goals in 33 games for Lyon in the previous season. Yet, Spurs were hoping that he would have been the best fit as a backup for Kane. The England international is the clear first choice at White Hart Lane, but that is a huge void to fill after him. Spurs failing to win their last four matches right now is seen as a direct consequence of Kane not being in the team. The 23-year-old has missed the last eight games with an injury, but he is widely tipped to return in the next couple of weeks.

At Marseille, N’Jie has already shown an improvement in fortunes and form. He has one goal in four starts for the French outfit, who have struggled in an otherwise mediocre campaign. Marseille have managed only three wins in 10 league matches. Spurs are unlikely to take the form of N’Jie into a lot of consideration at the end of the campaign given that his temporary club has struggled.

Any decision on the 23-year-old will also have a direct impact on the future of Vincent Janssen. The Dutchman has scored two goals in the League Cup, and it has been the only noteworthy contributions of the former AZ striker.
