Tottenham need Lyon halfback

London Tottenham are aiming at the French Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

The Spurs have gone to a transfer hunt 18 calendar months later. The last purchase of the London club was Lucas Moura, whom they lured from PSG. However, after the club had built the stadium and the team advanced to the Champions League final and shows stably high level of football in the league, the management descended to desires of the manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

For one and a half seasons, Tottenham managed without additions to the squad, but even with one full roster achieved high results. This first of all speaks about the success of the coach Mauricio Pochettino, who created the conditions for personal development for the players. Whereas the Spurs catastrophically lacked quality players on the bench, which would create a competition inside the team.

In the Champions League final match Moussa Sissoko brought a penalty and couldn’t keep up with opponents for the whole match. Due to a lack of personnel, Pochettino left him on the field until the middle of the second half, although he could have replaced him earlier, like Allegri did with De Sciglio in the second leg against Real last year.

Having learned from their mistakes, the management made concessions to Pochettino and are ready to buy him one of the most promising midfielders, Tanguy Ndombele. The Frenchman is known for his technique and tackles, which has repeatedly surprised the football world. In the match with Barcelona, he managed to make more feints than Suarez and Dembele combined. The Frenchman’s transfer is estimated at 70 million euros, but the parties are still far from the deal.

Considering the fact that Tottenham have Hugo Lloris and Moussa Sissoko, adaptation for Ndombele would not be too difficult. Therefore, he himself can be interested in the London project, which expands its scale with every season.

According to the British bookmakers, Ndombele is closest to Tottenham (8/11). PSG are on the second place (7/2), then go Manchester City (16/1), Juventus (20/1) and Real Madrid (25/1).
