According to Calciomercato, Tottenham Hotspur have been in contact with Lyon to discuss a January move for midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
Spurs did not spend during the summer transfer window, but are expected to be active at the start of 2019, with a new midfielder believed to be on the agenda.
Indeed, Mousa Dembele is currently on the sidelines with an ankle problem, and the Belgium international has also been strongly linked with a move away from the club.
Ndombele has been linked with a number of clubs over the last few months, but according to Calciomercato, Tottenham are in the driving seat.
Just 21 years of age, Ndombele spent last season on loan at Lyon from Amiens before completing a permanent move to the French giants.
Playmaker FC’s Theo Ogden was at Wembley to witness Spurs’ dramatic second half comeback against PSV. Watch the drama unfold in the video below…
This term, the France international has scored twice in 17 appearances in all competitions for Lyon.
The Tottenham fans have been on social media reacting to the transfer report, and it would be fair to say that there are some mixed views:
This guy should be Dembele replacement
Full of energy

After the summer transfer window, I don’t believe anything regarding transfers to @SpursOfficial.
