Tottenham Agree Fee With Club To Bring This Midfielder To North London: Wise Move For Spurs?

According to a recent report by talkSPORT, Tottenham Hotspur have come to an agreement with Olympique Lyonnais for the transfer of Tanguy Ndombele during this summer transfer period. The same source has also revealed that Spurs are willing to break their transfer record and have agreed on a £65m deal to recruit the French midfielder in this off-season.

Ndombele’s Stock Has Risen In European Football

The 22-year-old enjoyed a majestic campaign with Lyon after putting in some commanding performances in the French top-flight last season. Ndombele made 47 appearances for the French giants in the previous campaign, finding the back of the net on two occasions while providing eight assists in multiple competitions.

The Longjumeau born whizkid has already represented France in four international matches thus far and could play an integral role for his country in the years to come. Ndombele is also highly versatile as he can operate in multiple roles in midfield. He is primarily a box to box midfielder but can even fill in as a defensive midfielder or put in a shift down the right flank.

What Will The French Youngster Bring To North London?

Ndombele tends to make a lot of well-timed runs from midfield using his speed and power. He can also open up a rigid defence with a killer pass in the final third. The French starlet is a prospect to watch out for in the future and has the potential to become a household name in Europe as long as he can continue improving on the field.

The addition of a player of Ndombele’s talents will undoubtedly provide more competition for the likes of Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama at the North London club next season.

The former SC Amiens talent is also used to playing in the UEFA Champions League so he won’t have any problems performing at the highest level if Mauricio Pochettino can win the chase to land him before the start of the new season.

Signing Ndombele For £65m: Wise Move For Spurs?

Ndombele might not be worth £65m at the moment, but he has the potential to become a player who will eclipse that fee in a few years. Thus, it makes sense for Spurs to splash the cash on a quality midfielder like Ndombele who could become one of their star players in the future if he can make a successful transition to Premier League football.
