Georges-Kevin Nkoudou will undergo a medical at Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday ahead of a £10.8 million transfer from Marseille, a source close to the Premier League club has told ESPN FC.
Nkoudou, who scored 14 goals in all competitions last season after joining Marseille from Nantes for £1m, arrived in London on Monday and is expected to sign a five-year deal with Spurs.
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has already recruited Victor Wanyama from Southampton and Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar for a combined £28m, as the club bolster their squad ahead of a return to the Champions League this season.
A source said Spurs stepped up interest in Nkoudou after deciding against pursuing Newcastle's Georginio Wijnaldum and Lille winger Sofiane Boufal.
Meanwhile, Marseille are interested in taking Clinton Njie, the forward signed by Tottenham from Lyon last summer, on loan but any deal will be independent of Spurs' move for Nkoudou.
Tottenham will listen to offers for Njie after agreeing the deal for Nkoudou.
