Tottenham winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is eager to move to St Etienne.
With less than two weeks to run before the European market closes, Nkoudou is eager to leave Spurs knowing he has no chance of first team football this season under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Mainz are also keen on the winger, but L'Equipe says Nkoudou favours the ASSE option.
ASSE want to take the midfielder on-loan with the option to buy and talks are continuing today with Spurs.
Nkoudou spent last season on-loan with Burnley.
