Tottenham eyeing Rennes striker M'Baye Niang

Rennes striker M'Baye Niang is being lined up for a return to England.

L'Equipe says Niang is being considered by Tottenham as a back-up for Harry Kane.

The England striker is Spurs' undisputed No.1 forward, and is only ever unlikely to play if he's either injured or being rested.

Rennes striker Niang is on Spurs' radar, though the playing time on offer is 'very minimal'.

Niang has also been linked with Marseille - who Andre Villa-Boas coaches - and a move to OM looks more likely at this point than sitting on the bench behind Kane.

The striker had a previous spell in the Premier League with Watford.
