Tanguy Ndombele is the top transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur this summer. Yesterday itself we reported on a morphed photograph of the box to box midfielder being shared on social media that showed him in Tottenham colour. However, there’s a chance the club is further along in this pursuit than we have been led to believe so far. Daniel Levy has high ambitions this season.

Olympic Lyon looking at Tanguy Ndombele replacement
The Ligue 1 club are known to have a tough negotiator in Jean-Michel Aulas. He carries much the same reputation that Daniel Levy has or Napoli’s Aurelio De Laurentiis conjures in our heads: a tough nut to crack. Lyon may not have declared about any incoming replacements but we know that a replacement for Tanguy Ndombele is being lined up by the French outfit.
Jean Lucas Oliveira is a defensive midfielder at Brazilian club Flamengo and is being strongly billed to make the move to the French league. The 20 year old is very much in the mould of the diminutive Ndombele. Lyon are said to be in advanced talks over a £7.1 million transfer for the midfielder, clearing Spurs’ path to the Frenchman who is on top of Pochettino’s wishlist.
Jean-Michel Aulas has indirectly confirmed Tottenham’s offer
“What I can say to you is if you see a very good box-to-box midfield youngster arrive, in the coming days, then there will be a chance that Tanguy Ndombele leaves, but for the moment, we have not received offers of the level that we feel is a just price.”

Tottenham Hotspur have already submitted at least one bid for Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele. It is not a lack of bid that’s holding up the transfer. Rather, Lyon want a mammoth £63 million for their 22 year old player and Tottenham may need to meet their demands if the club really want to bring him to London. All signs indicate that Spurs will go all the way to secure the club’s top transfer targets this summer.
Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso are certainly two of the top Spurs’ transfer targets.
