Tanguy Ndombele is edging closer to joining Tottenham Hotspur after a fee was finally agreed with Lyon, according to reports.
The story was subsequently picked up on by several other publications, which suggests there is some truth to it.
One of the most interesting write-ups is by ESPN. They claim personal terms are yet to be agreed with Ndombele but it should only be a formality.
Their reports goes on to say it was important for Pochettino, and Ndombele himself, that the Frenchman would become a Spurs player before the start of the club’s pre-season campaign.
Pochettino obviously wants Ndombele to have a full pre-season with his new teammates so that he is ready for day one of the 2019/20 season.
In the past it has often been the case that Tottenham’s deadline day signings haven’t been ready to play immediately because Pochettino takes his time to indoctrinate new additions.
But it looks like that won’t be the case with Ndombele.
