Houssem Aouar, a Lyon attacking midfielder, is a target for Tottenham.
Informal conversations have been undertaken with Aouar's agents, according to Sky Sports News.
Aouar's Lyon contract expires in two years, and he wants to consider all of his choices before deciding on his future.
The playmaker would want to play in the Champions League, and he is aware that he may have more possibilities for a move away from the Ligue 1 club by next summer.
Aouar, who represented France at the U21 European Championships earlier this year, scored eight goals and added four assists in 33 games for Lyon last season, propelling them to a fourth-berth finish in Ligue 1 and a place in the Europa League.
Thus far in the summer transfer window, Tottenham has signed Bryan Gil from Sevilla and Cristian Romero and Pierluigi Gollini on loan from Atalanta.
Spurs are also close to finalising a six-year contract with 18-year-old Metz midfielder Pape Matar Sarr.
