Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has been one of the most coveted footballers ahead of this summer transfer window and now that the market is open, rumors around the French midfielder start to grow every day. Ndombele has found potential suitors in England, Italy, and Spain, but it looks like he’s made up his mind on where he would like to go next campaign.
In fact, Ndombele has confirmed to French media that he would be highly interested in joining a Premier League side, specifically Tottenham Hotspur in the near future. Last season was just great for the 22-year-old, he had 49 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and dishing eight assists as Lyon qualified for the Champions League. His dribbling and passing skills have made him one of the most interesting midfielders in the old continent right now.
In an interview with Telefoot, Ndombele said, as quoted by the Evening Standard:
"Tottenham are a great team, a big club. They finished fourth in their league and reached the Champions League Finals. They are a big club and what player would not be interested by a big club?"
Moreover, the report claims that the Lillywhites have already started talks with Lyon and are confident they can reach an agreement to acquire the French international. Tanguy just came back from international duties with the French national team and is planning to take some time off before making the final decision about his future.
"I will concentrate on what I have to do on the pitch, then I'll go on holiday, rest my head and after that I'll try to see what I can do," he added.
Tottenham are reportedly trying to boost their midfield this offseason and alongside Ndombele, Real Betis midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso, Leeds' Jack Clarke and Fulham youngsters Ryan and Steven Sessegnon have all been linked with a move to North London.
