Cameroon's International Clinton Njie has revealed he turned down transfer interest from arch rivals Arsenal to sign for Tottenham side this week. The former Lyon forward signed a five-year deal at White Hart Lane after the two clubs settled on a £10.5million fee for the exciting 21-year-old.
Pochettino is determined to add extra firepower to his attack in the remaining two weeks of the transfer window and Njie is the first of what’s expected to be a busy fortnight for the Lilywhites. And Njie has ensured he’ll receive a great welcome from supporters by revealing he turned down Arsene Wenger’s side to sign on at White Hart Lane.
‘I’ve never been afraid that my transfer to Tottenham would not materialise,’ said Nje. ‘I never had the leaders of Arsenal on the phone, they only contacted my agent. My choice was made, I was determined to join Tottenham. ‘Here I will evolve under the orders of Mauricio Pochettino, a coach who plays youngsters and progresses.’
