Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter after reports that the club had opened discussions with Lyon over a possible deal for Tanguy Ndombele had begun.

The Guardian report that the French international is high on Tottenham’s summer shopping list but both clubs are currently around €25million apart with their valuation.

Lyon are holding out for €75million (£66.6m) for the 22-year-old with Daniel Levy valuing him at around the €50million mark.

Ndombele is regarded as one of the brightest midfield talents in European football and has also attracted interest from Juventus Real Madrid and Manchester City.

With Levy coming up a tough negotiator in Lyon’s Jean-Michel Aulas a deal for the player could become a drawn-out process unless a big spending European giant come in and meet the asking price.

The news has caused some fans to express their concern and frustration over another potential protracted transfer deal which notoriously either sees Spurs miss out on a target completely, or sign the player in the dying moments of the transfer window.

Here’s what some supporters had to say

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Why everyone thinks this kid is a sure thing is amazing to me. Its not like this is Pogba or even eriksen. This kid looks like a star but he plays in a very subpar league. Granted their are a few decent teams in liegue 1 but the price tag for this kid is enormous and is the kind of mistake that could set a team back years. Considering our history with Lyon players I hope that we really think this through before blowing 70 million pounds on a whim and a prayer.
