Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to the news that the club could be set to offer some big wages to a potential new signing.
Among the areas that Pochettino wishes to upgrade this summer, central midfield is thought to be a priority with the Argentine keen to replace Mousa Dembele, who departed the club in January, with Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele (Football.London).
The Frenchman has had another terrific season for the club putting up some terrific displays in the league as well as the Champions League.
A couple of days ago Sky Sports Italia reported that Spurs’ initial bid of worth €45m plus bonuses for Ndombele was rejected by Lyon. However, the Lilywhites are expected to return with a more improved offer soon.
Now, Football Insider has reported that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is willing to offer the 22-year-old midfielder £200,000 a week in an effort to convince him to sign for Spurs. If this is true, that will make the French international the second highest earner at the club after Harry Kane.
Here is what some Spurs fans have had to say about the prospect of Ndombele’s pay packet.
I was getting a little excited but now I've seen this it must be total bollocks.

Spurs Web Opinion
If this is true, then it is certainly positive news as it looks like Levy is now finally set to loosen his purse strings after running an extremely tight ship for several years. If Spurs wish to compete for the best talents in Europe, then they have no choice but to pay the going rate for these players.
