It was reported a few days ago that Tottenham had agreed a club record £65 million fee with Lyon for the transfer of their midfielder Tanguy Ndombele (Sky Sports).
While these reports got Spurs fans excited, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas poured cold water on suggestions that the deal is done by insisting that the two clubs were still far apart in their valuation (RMC Sport).
However, there are suggestions that this could be a mere smokescreen from Aulas as Lyon try to get their targets in before a deal is announced (Football.London).
Ndombele took to social media to post a picture from his vacation from Monaco, and the picture’s caption got some Spurs fans really excited.
The caption can be translated to “Where no one is waiting for me..”, and the 22-year-old disabled comments for his post.
While some viewed this as a positive sign, others suggested that fans were reading too much into the post.
I would happily get cheated on again if it meant he signs ffs pleaseeee

Spurs Web Opinion
Spurs fans are clearly desperate for the club to announce Ndombele as securing the 22-year-old’s signing will be a massive statement from the club. So this is clearly a case of fans reading too much into the post. In all likelihood, the caption had nothing to do with his proposed move to Spurs.
