Tottenham Hotspur are said to be close to announcing the biggest ever transfer in the history of the football club, just weeks after reaching the Champions League Final for the first time.

Sky Sports say that Spurs have already agreed a fee of £65m with Lyon over a deal for their midfield star Tanguy Ndombele in what would be a club record signing.

The Sun claim that the deal should be announced ‘shortly’ after Ndombele was taken on a tour of the club’s impressive modern training ground this week by Pochettino himself.

Elsewhere in North London, Arsenal are said to have just £45m to spend this summer (Daily Mail), despite Tottenham going out and buying one player alone for £20m more than that.

Tensions are already running high in the red side of North London, after Spurs finished about Arsenal yet again last season.

One Mesut Ozil fan account in particular on Twitter had a complete meltdown over the Ndombele deal.
