Tottenham Hotspur has submitted a £23m bid for OGC Nice forward Alassane Plea as they look to bolster their attacking options for next season, according to a report on Talksport.

The North London club have been keeping a close eye on the situation of the striker and want him at the club to provide some competition for a starting spot in attack.

Plea can operate as a centre-forward as well as a winger, but Spurs face competition from German Bundesliga club Borussia Moenchengladbach for his signature.

The 25-year-old managed to find the back of the net 16 times in the French top flight last season, whilst also providing five assists.

The Frenchman is also no stranger to European club competitions after he played three times in the UEFA Champions League last season, whilst netting four times in the UEFA Europa League.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino wants his side to challenge for the league title next season and to do so they will need plenty of goals, which is something that Plea offers.

OGC Nice is yet to respond to the offer but Spurs are hoping that £23m should be enough to tempt them to let him leave.
