Liverpool fans have been impressed by Tottenham Hotspur’s signing of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon.
Spurs confirmed that they had secured a deal to acquire the France international on Tuesday.

Ndombele has signed a contract at the club until 2023, with Lyon revealing the finances of the deal; Spurs have paid €60m (£53.7m) with add-ons that could be worth up to €10m (£8.9m).
The midfielder subsequently becomes the club’s record signing, with the fee easily eclipsing the £42m paid to sign Davinson Sanchez from Ajax in 2017.
Ndombele is likely to become a key member of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad as the north London outfit look to close the considerable gap between themselves and the Merseyside outfit and Manchester City in 2019/20, whom they finished 26 and 27 points behind respectively last term.
Indeed, Liverpool beat the north London club in the Champions League final in Madrid but they have yet to make a first-team signing this summer; their only acquisition thus far has been 17-year-old defender Sepp van den Berg.
Reds fans have been quick to express their admiration for Spurs doing such a deal.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Spurs signing Ndombele. That is a game changing signing for them. Signing of the summer (so far)

Surprised Spurs are signing Ndombele. Could be signing of the summer. I thought bigger clubs would be all over him.

Even as a Liverpool fan you have to be happy for spurs. Had an awesome season last year without spending a dime with a great squad and quality manager. Deffo deserve a player of this quality. Have a feeling i'm not going to enjoy coming up against this guy haha #Spurs #Ndombele https://t.co/sARnOOUkBr

Moussa Dembele was a real gem for Tottenham and Ndombele is going to be even better. Even better footwork than Dembele and got a much better final pass. Even though this means the end of Eriksen, the missing piece in the Tottenham side.

Quite jealous of this tbf. Think it might be because we haven't signed anyone yet though… https://t.co/MynoWqjvmw
