Tottenham, Newcastle ponder bid for Standard Liege defender Mangala
He is a 20-year-old centre-half who started out as a striker and was converted to left-back before establishing himself in the middle.
Being left-sided makes him a rare commodity and that has prompted a lot of interest.
He is a regular in France's Under 21 squad and has been talked of highly after figuring alongside another highly rated French defender Mamadou Sakho.
However, English clubs are not fully convinced that at £6million he would be money well spent.
