Premier League giants Tottenham have reportedly joined the race to sign unsettled Manchester United striker Anthony Martial this summer.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford after a disappointing campaign with the Red Devils as they finished the just concluded season trophy-less.
Anthony Martial did not also enjoy an active playing time at the out-gone Premier League season under Jose Mourinho and has been left out of France squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
He has been linked with a move to Chelsea, but according to the latest report by Irish Independent, Tottenham want him in their squad for next season.
The report added that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has identified the Frenchman as his number one target for next season.
Meanwhile, Tottenham's hopes of winning the race for Martial's signature could be boosted by the fact that Manchester United are interested in defender Toby Alderweireld.
