Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has urged French giants Paris Saint-Germain to enter the race to sign the highly-rated midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

The 22-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Lyon’s final Ligue 1 match of the season which saw them thrash Caen 4-0 to cement their place in next season’s Champions League.

Aulas revealed that Lyon have had up to three offers for Ndombele, with PSG yet to match the other bids on the table and the president is keen to see the player head to Paris, yet has previously made suggestions that a move to Juventus would be best suited.

Ndombele has made 48 appearances in all competitions for Lyon this season, scoring twice.

Spurs are keen to recruit a new box to box midfielder having lost the services of Mousa Dembele in January when he made the switch to China.  


The Frech international is not short of admirers with Tottenham, Manchester United and Juventus all said to be keen to land the former Amiens player (Daily Mail).

Aulas told L’Equipe: “I am negotiating with the biggest European clubs for Ndombele,” 

“I’m the one who revived the PSG talks so that they don’t feel dismissed. If PSG aligns with the three offers received and Tanguy agrees, it would be nice if he goes there.”


Ndombele is certainly the player that Spurs need to vastly improve their midfield however such is the demand for his services from some of Europe’s top clubs, he certainly will not come cheap.

It remains to be seen if Daniel Levy will be prepared to break the club’s transfer record to sign the highly-rated star.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. No surprise there – Lyon are no fans of Spurs. They have been “Levy-ed” before! C’est La Vie Monsieur le President!

  2. Daniel Levi should give Poch R150 million to spend on New players because he has achieved it ,trust his judgement and let him choose his kind of players

  3. Aulas wants Ndombele to go to a rival? I get that he wants them in the bidding war, and I guess he wants to make noises that he genuinely wants to entertain the deal rather than just use them, but could he possibly be serious??
