Toulouse chairman Olivier Sadran has confirmed that they are close to finalising a deal with Tottenham for Etienne Capoue.
Spurs have moved to seal a deal for the French international midfielder after Cardiff and Atletico Madrid made bids last month.
Capoue now looks set to be the latest capture for Tottenham this summer, following on from the signings of Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado.
Sadran is quoted by L'Equipe: "We have almost found an agreement with Tottenham.
"There are still a few details to sort out, but you won't take big risk if you say he will go there."
Reports in France claim Capoue will be handed a four-year deal at White Hart Lane and that his signing could be concluded by this weekend.
