Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be weighing up moves for Toulouse midfielders Etienne Capoue and Moussa Sissoko. Capoue (pictured), a 20-year-old France U21 international, has made 37 league appearances since breaking onto the first-team scene in 2007. While Sissoko, just 19, has already made more than 60 Ligue 1 outings and been capped 12 times by the French U21 side. Both are believed to have been watched by Premier League scouts on numerous occasions with a view to bringing them to England ahead of the new campaign. And it is Spurs supremo Harry Redknapp who is reportedly ready to launch a double raid on the French outfit for the pair's services, although Capoue has revealed he is taking reports linking him with a move abroad with a pinch of salt. “It is good to be linked with prestigious clubs, but I have only just started in the top division in France and I need to prove myself before moving abroad,” Capoue told skysports.com. “I will not lose any sleep over it. I am very down to earth and I will continue to work hard and have more good games for Toulouse." SPURS FANS!
