Tottenham Hotspur Finalising Deal With Club For This Midfielder: What Will He Bring To North London?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

According to a recent report by Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur are finalising talks with Olympique Lyonnais for French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele who is at the top of Mauricio Pochettino’s wish-list for this ongoing summer transfer window. The same source has revealed that Lyon has already given the player permission to visit Spurs’ Hotspur Way training ground at Enfield ahead of a potential move in this off-season.

Ndombele’s Rapid Emergence In The French Top-Flight

The Lyon star has enjoyed a sensational season in the Ligue 1 after he put in a series of dominant displays under Bruno Génésio’s stewardship last season. The 22-year-old made 49 appearances for the French outfit last term, registering three goals while creating eight assists across all competitions.

Ndombele has already managed to earn four international caps for France so far and is destined to play a decisive role for his nation in the coming years. He is also versatile enough to assume different roles in midfield. He primarily operates as a box to box midfielder but can play in a more restricted defensive position at the centre of the park or even put in a tireless shift on the right wing.

What Will The French Wonderkid Bring To The New White Hart Lane?

The Longjumeau born starlet can time his challenges to perfection in midfield and has the pace and power to recover in 1v1 situations inside his own half. He can also pick out a final pass in the offensive end of the field. Ndombele has all the skillset required to succeed at a club like Tottenham, but one can argue whether he can cope with the physicality and high intensity of Premier League football.

Ndombele’s acquisition will undoubtedly increase competition for Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama for a place in the Spurs midfield in the upcoming campaign.

The ex-EA Guingamp prospect also has some valuable UEFA Champions League experience under his belt from last season so he shouldn’t have too many problems coping with European football if Mauricio Pochettino can successfully lure him to North London during the summer transfer period.

Ndombele has incredible potential and could become one of the greatest midfielders of his generation if he can keep his head down and continue improving his game on the pitch. Pochettino is one of the best man-managers in world football so he could be the ideal person to nurture and develop the French midfield ace.
