Spurs push Man Utd to open talks about Martial fee

Tottenham are ready to step up their interest in Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial.

The London Evening Standard says Tottenham are reluctant to recruit another specialist striker to compete with Harry Kane.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is instead targeting a forward who can also play on the wing or at No10 and United's Martial is high on his list of targets.

Tottenham bid for Martial, who was left out of France's World Cup squad last week, before he joined United for an initial £36million from Monaco in September 2015 and they have closely monitored his situation at Old Trafford.

The Londoners are hopeful that United, who are interested in Spurs's centre-half Toby Alderweireld, will be prepared to do business this summer, while Martial's £65,000-a-week wages should not pose a problem. If Spurs sign Martial or a similar player, he would be able to compete for a place in the attacking trio behind Kane, as well as deputise for the 24-year-old up front.
