Summer Deal For £12 million Tottenham Attacker Agreed – Player Could Be On The Way Out

Clinton N’Jie is currently on loan at Marseille

Tottenham winger Clinton N’Jie joined Marseille on loan at the start of the 2016/17 season, having failed to impress Mauricio Pochettino after joining Spurs from Lyon for £12 million in 2015.

The Cameroonian was never at ease in the Premier League and hence Pochettino decided that the player would be better off with a loan spell away from the club, instead of wasting his time on the bench at White Hart Lane.

The details of the deal had remained a secret, with only the €7m buy option being revealed to the press. Now it looks like some more information has been revealed by L’Equipe (h/t Sport Witness), with them claiming that the clause to buy the player permanently has been triggered by Marseille, who have been impressed with the player’s performance this season.

It is unknown if the clause was triggered automatically by the number of appearances/goals but according to these reports, the clause has been triggered by the French club.

They say that despite the clause being triggered, the forward could still leave Marseille in the summer. However, a second season with the Ligue 1 club is ‘probable’ is what has been reported.

N’Jié has been used occasionally by Rudi Garcia and the attacker has made 20 appearances this season. He has been on the pitch for a total of 1052 minutes. His versatility seems to be appreciated by Garcia. Though the stats aren’t overly impressive, the player has shown glimpses of his former self that he was during his time at Lyon.

He has scored 4 goals and also has an assist to his name. He has been used on the left-wing and also as a centre-forward by the Marseille manager. N’Jie has been a perfect utility player for Marseille and surely, his time in France this season has been better than what his season at the White Hart Lane last time around.

What the future holds for Clinton N’Jie is totally unknown but one thing that’s certain is that there is hardly a way back for the Cameroon international at the North London club.

    I really do not want Mr Levy to sell Dele Alli especially to Real Madrid but if he did then I’m sure he will be sold for a lot more than £50million as stated especially as We have a new stadium to pay for.
