West Ham United have made a £27m offer for reported Tottenham target Alassane Plea, according to Sky Sports.

The French media have been linking Spurs will a move for Plea in recent weeks, with some outlets claiming a bid has already been made.

According to Sky, West Ham are the only club to have made an offer for the 25-year-old, although Tottenham, Newcastle United and Fulham all want to sign him.

It is believed Nice value the former France Under-21 international at around £27 million, so West Ham’s bid is likely to be accepted unless Nice use the opening offer to begin a bidding war and drive up the price.

Plea scored 21 goals in 48 appearances across all competitions for Nice in 2017-18, including 16 in 34 Ligue 1 games – an average of almost a goal every other match.

Spurs have apparently identified Plea as their primary alternative to Manchester United striker Anthony Martial, who has proved too expensive to sign this summer.

If Tottenham are genuinely interested in Plea, there is a good chance we will hear news of an offer in the near future.

  1. What is going on we can not leave the signings until it is to late. However like always I trust the manager and Mr Levy.

  2. We seem to be the only club not buying players.

    Zayech, the Ajax playmaker has been sold to an unspecified club. Hope its us as he is skilled at creating goals. First we need to nail down Erikson, Son, Deli to long term deals then build.
    We have a new great stage and need fresh young future stars to develop.
    In Poch we trust.

  3. Why is it not a surprise that Spurs are leaving all summer signings to late on/deadline date as always – therefore not being integrated into the squad early playing wise and fitness wise!
    We never start season well. I wonder why and it’s not that buying late saves you money on a good player eg Sissko at £30m enough said!!!
    I wish we were more pro active in bringing in new players early like Man Utd and Liverpool – would start season in much better position going forward, but we never will due to the way Levy does our business!! Sad really as a loyal supporter.
