Tottenham Hotspur are growing increasingly confident of striking a deal for Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, according to Football London.
Earlier this week, we relayed reports suggesting Spurs have been told they must increase their offer for Ndombele up to £63 million.
Football London journalist Alasdair Gold, who is usually reliable on all things Tottenham, now claims all parties are confident a deal will eventually be done.
However, Gold insists there is will some way to go despite the fact Daniel Levy has been negotiating with Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.
It’s not exactly a surprise that the transfer is taking a long time to happen, if it happens at all.
Spurs are set to smash their transfer record if they sign Ndombele, so Levy will understandably be negotiating with caution.
What’s more, the Londoners haven’t made a signing since Lucas Moura’s arrival in January 2018 – Tottenham fans are quite used to waiting.
Ndombele has also been linked with Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, so Levy may have to speed things up if he doesn’t want one of those giants to swoop.
