Tottenham will ask to sign Anthony Martial from Manchester United as part of any deal for Toby Alderweireld, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Lilywhites will try and land the 22-year-old if Manchester United make a move to bring the Belgian defender to Old Trafford this summer.

The same story says that Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is ready to let Alderweireld leave the club this summer after the two parties failed to reach an agreement on a new deal.

Manchester United have been touted as a possible destination for the defender, and Spurs could now look to use the Red Devils’ interest in a bid to bring Martial to White Hart Lane.

Martial has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at Manchester United in recent months and that has prompted speculation about his future.

The striker has been left out of the France squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia, and it remains to be seen whether he will still be at Manchester United next season.

According to the same story, Tottenham are determined to bring in at least £70m for Alderweireld, but that could be offset if Martial is included as part of the same deal.
