Ndombele impresses for Lyon
Tanguy Ndombele made the permanent switch to Lyon in September of 2018, moving from SC Amiens.
Ndombele had previously spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Lyon, before the Ligue 1 outfit spent a fee believed to have been £7.2 million 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 that 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 €25 million apart in their respective valuations of the midfielder.
Spurs are said to value him at €50 million, while Lyon want €75 million for Ndombele.
As per the report in the Guardian, Mauricio Pochettino has informed Daniel Levy that Ndombele is exactly the type of player that 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.
