Last season Tottenham identified, through Paul Mitchell and his team, a young striker in the French third division and even made a bid for him during the summer transfer window.
The striker in question was 19-year-old Chateauroux forward Jean-Philippe Mateta and we will continue to watch him after his transfer to Lyon on a 5-year deal for £4.25-million (€5m - AUS$7.49m - US$15.62m) which includes around £850,000 (€1m - AUS$1.5m - US$11.12m) of performance-related bonus payments.
French clubs are allowed one signing outside the transfer window, which should be scrapped, it should be the same for all countries in Europe.
His transfer will mean we get to see him perform at a higher level with Lyon having signed him because star striker Alexandre Lacazette is injured his thigh. If he is to sign a new contract he wants a release fee inserted having failed to force through a move this summer.
