MANAGERLESS Tottenham are pressing ahead with plans to land Marcus Thuram, according to reports.
Owner Daniel Levy is eager not to be left behind in the transfer window despite the search for a new boss still taking place.
And reports in France claim the club are eyeing the Borussia Monchengladbach ace as their first deal of the summer.
RMC Sport write how Spurs have 'prioritised' the forward with the player 'expected to leave the club' this summer.
The article adds how 'talks between the two clubs have moved forward' in the last few days.
Thuram, 23, scored eight times in 29 Bundesliga appearances last season playing both as a striker and out on the left-wing.

His impressive form has seen him earn a call up to the French Euro 2020 squad.
Son of legendary defender Lillian Thuram, the talented forward was linked with moves to Manchester City, Juventus, and Barcelona last year.
He joined Monchengladbach in 2019 for £10million and won the Bundesliga Rookie of the Month in his first three consecutive months.
Tottenham's quest to sign Thuram is unlikely to be a direct replacement for star man Harry Kane.
The captain is ready for pastures new but won't decide his future until after the Euros.
SunSport exclusively revealed how Levy will only accept cash for Kane and is not interested in a player exchange deal.
Kane is likely to cost one of the European giants in the region of £150m to be lured away from Spurs.
