Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal with Toulouse to sign highly-rated midfielder Etienne Capoue. The 25-year-old French defensive midfielder has to agree personal terms and pass a medical before the transfer can be completely finalized, which could happen as early as tomorrow or Friday, according to a French website.
The transfer fee is reported to be approximately £8.6million. Last month, Toulouse accepted a bid from Cardiff City for Capoue, but the deal was never finalized because Capoue wasn’t interested in moving to Cardiff.
Capoue has five caps for France as well as 174 league appearances for Toulouse since 2007.
If Capoue signs for Tottenham, that’ll bring the club’s transfer signings this summer to four with Roberto Soldado, Paulinho and Nacer Chadli already on the books.
