Spurs join battle to sign 22-year-old star from Ligue 1

Tanguy Ndombele has become one of the hottest prospects in the French top flight so far this season and the Lyon midfielder could make a move to Tottenham Hotspur, based on rumours.

According to a report from Tuttosport translated by Sport Witness, the London club has become another club interested in the services of Ndombele and Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy could hire his services to strengthen a midfield that has been struggling at various points this season.

Tottenham failed to secure signings for Pochettino during last summer and, with the new stadium close to being finished, the club might finally invest in the coming transfer window to make up for that.

Ndombele has risen to prominence this season, securing a starting role for the French club and displaying the kind of box-to-box performances that could be ideal for a team such as Tottenham who have been lacking in that particular department.
