Tottenham are set to open talks with Manchester United about signing Anthony Martial this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that a number of clubs have expressed an interest in signing the 22-year-old striker this summer, but Tottenham are now set to ramp up their interest in the France international.

Martial’s future at Old Trafford has been a source of speculation due to his lack of playing time under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford in recent seasons.

The striker missed out on a place in the France squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia after his lack of playing time at Manchester United.

Now, it is being claimed that Tottenham are at the front of the queue to sign Martial and are set to begin negotiations to sign him this summer.

Meanwhile, Manchester United confirmed their first signing of the summer on Tuesday when they announced that they had agreed a deal to bring Brazilian midfielder Fred to Old Trafford from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Manchester United will be looking to add a number of other new signings to their squad this summer as they bid to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.
