Spurs have been linked with the Marseille midfielder Lassana Diarra earlier this season and the French international has given a huge hint that he will make a move this summer.
L’Equipe claim that Diarra has an agreement to leave Marseille for a free transfer in the summer, making the former Arsenal and Chelsea player a very cost effective option as cover for Eric Dier.
After Marseille’s 1-0 win against Reims at the weekend, Diarra admitted that it’s likely that he will leave the club.
“There is a great chance I leave Marseille. We will see. I’ve never spoken to other clubs. I hear a lot of things, I say nothing.”
With plenty of Champions League experience from his time at Real Madrid and a Premier League veteran, the 31-year old could be a smart acquisition after a brilliant season with Marseille. Watch Diarra in action below.
