Clinton-NJie-LyonTottenham are close to signing Clinton N’Jie from Lyon.

The forward, 21, is expected to complete a £12million transfer to White Hart Lane to partner Harry Kane in attack.

He has been earmarked as a replacement striker for both Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.

N’Jie appeared to say his goodbyes on Instagram yesterday but Express Sport understands the account is not his.

The Cameroonian scored seven goals for Lyon last season, six of which came in the final four months of the Ligue 1 campaign.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said yesterday that a transfer was imminent, with the player set to have a medical in London.

“Tottenham absolutely want Njie, we are close to an agreement. Thank you (chairman) Daniel Levy for making a consistent offer,” he said.
