Report: Tottenham looking to bring in a versatile midfielder with nine assists this summer
Jonathan Bamba is one of the players on Tottenham’s wishlist for the summer transfer window, according to a report. sky sports.
The French wide midfielder has had a fantastic season in Lille in Ligue 1.
The 24-year-old has six goals and nine assists in the league this season.
Bamba has been on Tottenham’s radar after Bale revealed yesterday that he plans to return to Real Madrid at the end of his summer loan spell.
Bell told sky sports: “My plan is to go back, this is my plan.
“I think the main reason I came to Tottenham this year was to play football first. Going into the Euros, I wanted to keep playing.”
Tottenham appear to be scrambling to find someone to fill the Bell-shaped void once the transfer window reopens.
Bamba has shown he can compete at a high level and the 24-year-old looks like a good option given his age around him.
Other players Spurs are said to be eyeing include Argentina international Nicolas Gonzalez, who played for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga, and Brazil international Gabriel Menino.
However, Menino, who Sky Sports claims plays for Palmeiras and can also play at full-back, is not someone Tottenham hope to bring in this summer.

Bamba is an adaptable player. Lille has had him play three roles this season – left and right as well as central midfielder.
That versatility is handy for either side and gives Mourinho the option to rotate his favourite top three, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.
Ligue 1 is less demanding than the Premier League, but the signs are hopeful considering Bamba’s form so far.
