Tottenham’s £11-million move for Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is on the brink of collapse after a breakdown in negotiations with Marseille over the winger.

Nkoudou had looked set to complete his transfer to White Hart Lane. However, it is understood that Marseille are unhappy with the structure of the payments now being proposed by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy following the departure of Marseille president Vincent Labrune. A new offer comprising an initial £4.2 million which could eventually reach £11 million is said to have fallen way short of Marseille’s valuation, with Spurs now understood to be ready to walk away from the deal.
