Tottenham are interested in a January move for Bordeaux centre midfielder Henri Saivet, according to Sam May.
Senegalese International Saivet, 25, has been in prolific form for the French Club this season and is the youngest professional player in the history of club having signed back in 2007, aged just 17.
He started his career as a winger before being moved in the centre of midfield, and has impressed under manager Willy Sagnol. The number 10 has made 22 appearances this season, scoring three goals and contributing to one assist.
The 5ft 9 man has been dubbed the ‘new Thierry Henry’ due to his dribbling abilities, pace power, aerial dules, holding on the ball and defensive contribution. It is said that he is available for a cut price £3.5 million in January.
It is understood Tottenham, Everton, Aston Villa, Swansea and Bournemouth all sent scouts to Anfield to watch the former France Youth International in Liverpool’s recent 2-1 Europa League victory over Les Girondins, in which Saivet scored the opener.
Since then Sunderland, Southampton and Newcastle have also joined the race for Saviet’s signature. He has a contract with Bordeaux until June 2017.
