Tottenham are interested in Toulouse youngster Adil Taoui, according to Foot Mercato (h/t Sun). The 17-year-old has been attracting a lot of attention in France and the report claims that he could move in the winter window.

Manchester City are also interested in the striker, as per the report, and are trying to sign him in the January window.

The 17-year-old has a couple of goals for the U19 side this season but is yet to make a senior appearance for the senior Toulouse team.

The report adds that Taoui could cost £4.5million and that the youngster would be open to exiting the club.

Taoui has a long way to go before he can think of playing in our first-team, but there is no harm in signing another quality youngster for the side.
