Ndombele impresses for Lyon
Tanguy Ndombele made the switch to Lyon in September of 2018, moving from SC Amines.
Ndombele had previously spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Lyon before the Ligue 1 outfit spent a fee believed to be £7.2m in order to sign him on a permanent basis.
During his two seasons at Lyon Ndombele has proven himself to be a top quality central midfielder.
The 22-year-old has made 96 appearances across all competitions, scoring four and assisting 16.
Ndombele also put on some particularly impressive displays in the Champions League this past season vs Manchester City, in which Lyon managed a 2-1 win and a 2-2 draw with the English champions.
Tottenham value Ndombele at €50m
Manchester City are one of the clubs who have been linked with a move for Ndombele recently.
This would make sense given City need to be looking for a replacement for 33-year-old Fernandinho.
However, it looks to be Tottenham who are edging out in front in the race to sign Ndombele.
Both Manchester clubs have also contacted Lyon over the midfielder

But, according to Fabrizio Romano writing for the Guardian, Tottenham and Lyon are €25m apart in their valuations of the midfielder.
Spurs are said to value him at €50m while Lyon want €75m for Ndombele.
As per the report in the Guardian, Mauricio Pochettino has told Danny Levy that Ndombele is exactly the type of player he wants to sign this summer.
Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has also admitted that he is negotiating with some top European clubs for the Frenchman:
“I am negotiating with the biggest European clubs for Ndombélé.”As quoted by the Guardian.
