Tottenham Hotspur are not known to make world record bids, but at least the club is now ready to break it’s own transfer record. Daniel Levy has finally agreed a club record £64 million fee for Tanguy NDombele’s transfer. ESPN goes on to say that the deal is wrapped up, bar personal terms and will be announced within the current week.
NDombele transfer going through for Spurs
The rivals say that Tottenham ‘Spursed’ every success they are trying to achieve. Not with Tanguy NDombele. He will be a Spurs player before the end of the week. The two clubs have agreed a record fee for the 22 year old midfielder. All that remains is the medical itself and the personal terms, which ESPN says will not be a problem.
Holding up the deal so far was the difference between Lyon’s valuation of the midfielder and the amount Tottenham were willing to pay. Daniel Levy seems to have blinked first in his clash of egos with Lyon’s Jean-Michel Aulas. Other deals stalled as Tottenham focused their attention on their biggest transfer target: Tanguy NDombele.
The first Spurs bid was worth £40 million
Tottenham made the opening offer worth £40.2 million and included some add-ons. Jean-Michel Aulas said NDombele’s transfer was certainly worth ‘more than £40 million’. He even said the deal may rise to 80 million Euros if Spurs kept playing hardball.
Daniel Levy understood there was no point haggling over the transfer fee as Lyon remained unmoved. A trip to the new Stadium and the Enfield training center was organized as Pochettino tried to convince the player that a future at Spurs was bright and beautiful. Let’s hope the medical goes through without problems.
