Tottenham have sent scouts to watch Guingamp striker Marcus Thuram, according to the Sun.

The 21-year-old is the son of former France international Lilian Thuram and has scored 10 goals in 17 appearances for Guingamp so far this season.

Thuram was on the scoresheet in a surprise 2-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the French League Cup last week.

And his performances are said to be attracting three Premier League clubs.

Along with Spurs, the Sun claims Manchester United and Arsenal have also watched Thuram as interest in the youngster mounts.

It makes sense that Tottenham are looking at young strikers with Fernando Llorente – linked with Barcelona this week – and Vincent Janssen expected to leave the club.

Harry Kane could be set for a spell on the sidelines after twisting his ankle against Manchester United on Sunday.

Son Heung-min is away with South Korea at the Asian Cup, meaning Llorente is the only remaining squad member who can play as a centre forward.

With that in mind, Spurs could be forced to decide between keeping Llorente or signing a new striker before the end of the month.
