Lyon want Njie back, Nice enquire


Lyon want Njie back, Nice enquire

Other clubs are now realising ha Clinton Njie is available and are starting o throw their hat into the ring for the Cameroon international.

Marseille are struggling financially each season and let too many players go on free transfers to balance the books each year. They have done so this summer with the sale of Michy Batshuayi, but they still have to put a team together on the cheap. The club is running with bare bones staff, everyone else has seen their contracts terminated.

Franco Baldini recommended Njie to Labrune and he then asked us for him when we were negotiating a transfer for Georges-Kevin N'Koudou. That has slowed down that move, as while we were happy to discuss a loan deal, we wanted, and possibly have got, a guaranteed buy clause that is activated after he plays a certain number of games. At least that is one version being reported, the other version is that the deal is an option to buy with his fee increasing the more games he plays for them on loan.

The fee being reported is £5.84-million (€7m - AUS$10.32m - US$7.72m). Njie was bought for a reported £8.3-million (€12m) a year ago.

Mauricio Pochettino and Paul Mitchell have explained to Njie the limited game time he will get at Tottenham and Labrune has flown to see him before he agreed to travel to France for further talks. He is reluctantly leaving Spurs, he would rather stay and fight for a place.

With the news that he is available Arsenal have made an enquiry and they were immediately informed we would no sell him to hem. Now L'Equipe are reporting that his former club Lyon have asked about his availability and they have greater financial power than Marseilles. In addition Nice have made an enquiry, but they also lack he financial capacity of Lyon in French football..

Potential destinations -  Marseille, Arsenal, Lyon and Nice.
