Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to join the bandwagon in pursuit of Ligue 1 midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. The central midfielder is only 21 years old and has a bright future ahead of him.

He spent the entirety of the last season on loan at Lyon from fellow Ligue 1 club Amiens and with the loan spell now ever, he is set to move back. However, Lyon have the chance to sign him on a permanent basis as there is a clause in their contract which will allow Lyon to sign him for €8million.

The French giants might just take him up on the option as the player’s value is skyrocketing and he is attracting interest from multiple clubs this summer. It is not every 21 year old who falls on the radar of every big club of Europe but that is the case with young Ndombele here.

There is the English champion Manchester City who are keen on him but they will be rivalled by local rivals Manchester United. There is also Arsenal who will want to reinstate their midfield with Jack Wilshere’s contract running out. French champions Paris Saint Germain are also keen on him with Italian sides AS Roma and Juventus also interested. Last but not the least there is Liverpool but it is unlikely that the Reds will come after adding Fabinho and Naby Keita to their team.

This will mean that Spurs, who are one of the interested clubs, will have to fight off considerable interest including Lyon’s first-buy option if they wish to land the 21-year-old. Ndombele has the necessary traits to succeed in England. He is an athletic defensive midfielder with good physical and technical abilities.

He is fast and does not shy away from a tackle meaning that he will able to fit into the defensive role in Spurs’ midfield perfectly. Mauricio Pochettino has Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Harry Winks to play in the central midfield role but Dembele could be set to leave the club this summer.

The veteran Belgian is north of 30 and could be on the move to China. He will leave a big hole in the team and knowing Pochettino’s habit of preferring young players, Ndombele could be a smart signing. He will be the perfect deputy to Dier and under the tutelage of Pochettino, he can become a real star for the future.
