Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with a potential move for Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele during the current transfer window (Daily Star).
The 22-year-old has also been attracting interest from PSG and Juventus with his playing style being compared to that of Michael Essien and N’Golo Kante (Daily Mail).
He has impressed in his performances for Lyon in the Champions League and also in Ligue 1, which saw the French side finish third.
Ndombele was in international action for France on Sunday afternoon in their 2-0 friendly victory against Bolivia and was asked about his future after the match.
He insisted that he has not asked to leave the club and would even be open to the possibility of staying for another season at Lyon after they once again qualified for Champions League football.
Ndombele signed a new long-term deal last September, giving Lyon the power to name their price for the France international (FourFourTwo).
“As I told my agents and the club, I’m not fixed yet, I did not make a decision,” he told Le Progres.
“Of course, I would see myself continuing in OL, the club will be in the Champions League, but I have not asked the question to stay or not, and I have not spoken with the new staff.”
Ndombele is exactly the type of player that Spurs need to improve their midfield, especially due to the departure of Mousa Dembele in January. If Daniel Levy wants the club to reach the next level, he needs to spend big.
