According to rumours in the French press, Tottenham wish to sign Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele as well as Lille winger Nicolas Pepe this Month.

French publication Daily Mercato claim that two players are Spurs’ main transfer targets in the winter transfer window.

Both players have been terrific for their respective clubs this season and are two are among the most sought-after young players in the world at the moment.

While Ndombele has been extremely consistent in the heart of Lyon’s midfield, Pepe has scored 12 goals and bagged 5 assists for Lille in just 19 games this season.

Bagging both Ndombele and Pepe will be a real statement of intent from Tottenham after the club failed to secure any new signings last summer.

Tottenham are likely to have to first sell players to free up squad places before they can add to their squad, and thus the likes of Dembele, Llorente, Wanyama, and Nkoudou have all been linked with moves away from the club during the current month.

Tottenham were one of the clubs strongly linked with Ndombele last summer but the singing didn’t materialise. If the likes of Dembele and Wanyama do depart, Tottenham certainly need to add numbers in the center midfield department and Ndombele will thus prove a valuable signing.

The prospect of signing Pepe, however, seems far fetched with Tottenham well stocked with attacking players, and the player himself recently coming out and suggesting that he would like to finish the season with Lille.
