Newcastle, Spurs watching Lille youngster Boubakary Soumare

Lille youngster Boubakary Soumare is on the radar of Newcastle and Tottenham.

Soumare, 20, has impressed so far this year in his first full season with the Lille first team.

The PSG academy graduate, who has been dubbed the 'new Paul Pogba', has only played a bit part role this term.

Le 10 Sport says the Toon had a bid turned down for the player in January.

The France U20 international put in an admirable shift for his country in their 1-0 win over Argentina earlier this week.

Tottenham scouts were left impressed.

However, Spurs weren't the only club keeping tabs on the young Frenchman, with scouts from Serie A giants Juventus also enjoying his performance.
