Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed talks have been opened with multiple clubs over the sale of reported Tottenham Hotspur target Tanguy Ndombele.
Earlier this month, we relayed reports from France claiming Spurs have reached an agreement with Ndombele’s representatives over a summer move.
Those claims may have been a little premature, with Aulus confirming there is no deal in place with any club.
However, the Lyon president admitted it is likely Ndombele will leave this summer and talks with potential suitors have begun.
He also suggested Paris Saint-Germain are likely to be the frontrunners for the 22-year-old if they eventually make their interest known.
“I am negotiating with the biggest European clubs for Ndombele,” Aulus told French outlet L’Equipe (via Goal).
“I’m the one who revived the PSG talks so that they don’t feel dismissed. If PSG aligns with the three offers received and Tanguy agrees, it would be nice if he goes there.”
Ndombele enjoyed a stellar campaign with Lyon, providing seven assists in 33 league appearances from defensive midfield.
Tottenham could do with that kind of productivity in midfield. Moussa has been a revelation this term but doesn’t create many chances, while Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama have been unfit for some time.
Ndombele would be an ideal addition to the squad, but it looks like Spurs will face competition from some European heavyweights.
