As reported by Fabrizio Romano and Foot Mercato, Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday finalised an agreement with Metz to sign 18-year-old midfielder Pape Matar Sarr from Ligue 1 side Metz.
The Senegalese international will spend the 2021/22 campaign back on loan with Les Grenats.
Get French Football News is unable to confirm Fabrizio Romano’s assertion that the deal is a €15m base, but sources contacted by Get French Football News with knowledge of Metz’s financial situation affirm that the deal is €25m all-in, including bonuses that they consider to be realistically attainable.
Sarr has already undergone a portion of his medical and will now conclude the move.
Manchester United and Manchester City had been in touch, but never made a concrete attempt to sign the teenager this summer.
