Tottenham sent a scout to watch Dijon midfielder Kwon Chang-hoon last week, according to reports in France.
Kwon, from South Korea, is the international teammate of Heung-Min Son.
Dijon lost 5-2 at home against Lyon – Kwon played 90 minutes and picked up a yellow card.
The 23-year-old has been playing in France for just over a year having joined from Suwon Samsung Bluewings in January 2017.
He has scored nine goals and provided two assists in Ligue 1 so far this season. Kwon has played 16 times at senior level for his country, scoring four goals.
The report also claims German side Borussia Monchengladbach hold an interest in the player, but Tottenham will be a more likely destination if they secure Champions League football.
A midfielder is apparently on Mauricio Pochettino’s shortlist this summer. Whether Kwon is among Spurs’ targets remains to be seen.
It will be interesting to see if the British media pick up on the story.
