Tottenham Hotspur are edging closer to completing a deal for Lyon star Tanguy Ndombele, according to the London Evening Standard.
Earlier this week, we relayed reports suggesting both Spurs and Lyon are growing increasingly confident about a deal being done.
And the Standard claims the transfer is ‘getting closer’ as negotiations between Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas continue.
Spurs apparently had concerns Ndombele would choose another club having been linked with Manchester City, Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid.
Those worries are said to have disappeared but the midfielder isn’t set to make a final decision on his future until he returns from a holiday.
The Standard also claims Tottenham are likely to be successful with a final offer of around £60 million having originally been quote £71 million by Lyon.
Levy is likely to drag out the negotiations, as he does with most transfers, with the club aiming to bring in their first new recruit since Lucas Moura’s arrival from PSG in January 2018.
Ndombele’s arrival could affect Victor Wanyama, who dropped a hint about his future this week – read more here.
