Tottenham Hotspur have yet to sign a player this summer, or over the last 16 months for that matter, but one potential transfer could be inching ever closer.

Spurs have reportedly been in talks with Lyon over midfield powerhouse Tanguy Ndombele for over a week now, according to Sky Sports.

However, the two clubs have yet to agree on a fee, with Lyon apparently asking for £63m for the Frenchman, a valuation that Spurs have yet to meet (Sky Sports).

Pochettino is in need of a new central midfielder, as one of his firm favourites, Mousa Dembele, departed the club for the Chinese Super League back in January.

Up until then, Dembele had been a first choice player and a regular starter when fit for the five years of Pochettino’s Tottenham reign.

Football journalist, Dan Kilpatrick, from the Evening Standard has now updated fans on the Tottenham Ndombele deal.

He claims that a deal is not close, but it is getting closer, with both clubs feeling confident that a deal can be reached this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Tanguy Ndombele has always been my top priority this summer, and that has not changed. With Dembele leaving, Spurs are in need of a top-class central midfielder, and Tanguy Ndombele ticks all the needed boxes and more. I believe that £63m is a fair price, and I would be frustrated to see another club swoop in for him purely because Tottenham are trying to haggle too much.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Even when Moussa Dembele was playing for us i said they needed Ndomdele coz he was a better veersion than the original!
    Problem you seem to not understand as a blogger or spurs fan is this, last year and every year Dan Kilpatrick is just a glorified blogger for the evening standard and espn.
    He does not know anymore than you, and really you should do your homework , don’t just write everything someonè else says or print, establish who has more chance of knowing what’s really happening!
