Tottenham prepare for the Champions League final versus Liverpool
Two weeks tonight, Tottenham will be playing in the Champions League final against Liverpool.
It is without a shadow of a doubt the biggest game Spurs have ever participated in.
Prior to their stunning 3-2 comeback win over Ajax in the Champions League semi-final second-leg, Spurs had only played at this stage of the competition (formerly known as the European Cup) in 1962.
As is well known, Tottenham have stayed clear of signing any new players in the past two transfer windows.
Now, with the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium up and running, and with Mauricio Pochettino performing miracles, signings could well be incoming this summer.
Tottenham move for Tanguy Ndombele – L’Equipe
French newspaper L’Equipe are one of the most reliable sources for transfer news regarding French and France-based players.
On Saturday, L’Equipe have made Tottenham fans sit up and take notice, as they have confirmed that the north London side have moved for midfielder Tanguy Ndombele of Lyon.
Ndombele is a 22-year-old midfielder that has established himself as one of the up and coming stars of the modern European landscape.
A box-to-box midfielder, Ndombele has impressed in the Champions League and Ligue 1.
Tottenham’s “significant offer” to Ndombele
According to L’Equipe, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has approved of the move for Ndombele.
Tottenham have made a “significant offer” to Ndombele, which L’Equipe report is “more financially significant than they have offered to anyone for some time.”
The problem for Spurs comes when L’Equipe mentions some of the other teams in the mix for Ndombele.
PSG and Juventus are also thought to be in the mix. The former have splashed huge amounts of cash in recent years to build a formidable side that has dominated French football, but is yet to crack the Champions League.
Further reports in France reveal Spurs interest in Tanguy Ndombele
A further report in Le10Sport on Saturday also builds up Spurs as the favourites to sign Tanguy Ndombele.
(It should be noted that Le10Sport are not considered as reliable as L’Equipe for transfer news though…)
They claim that Spurs are in pole position despite the interest from Juventus and PSG.
Le10Sport add that the fee for Tanguy Ndombele is likely to be at least 60 million euros, with the three-way chase likely to significantly increase the fee.
Tottenham’s previous highest fee paid was 42 million pounds for Davinson Sanchez in August 2017.
