Tottenham have announced the signing of Metz’s teenage midfielder Pape Matar Sarr.
The 18-year-old will remain with the Ligue 1 side for the remainder of the 2021-22 season, and has reportedly agreed a six-year contract, with a transfer fee of €15 million, plus add-ons.
Sarr emerged last season for the French side and became a Senegal international earlier this year. He had been linked with a move to other Premier League sides before his switch to Spurs was announced.
