Lyon are in talks with Tottenham over a loan move for Tanguy Ndombele after missing out on Giovani Lo Celso, according to The Athletic.
Ndombele and Lo Celso joined for huge fees in the summer of 2019 but have both failed to fulfil their potential at Spurs and look set for exits before Monday’s transfer deadline.
However, it seems Lo Celso may have opted to stay put – and as a result Ndombele could seal a departure.
The Athletic claims Lo Celso has rejected a loan move to Lyon, which has provoked the French club to move for their former player Ndombele instead.
It is believed Lyon want Tottenham to cover the majority of Ndombele’s wages, which could obviously put a spanner in the works – but there is said to be confidence a deal will be done.
There is no indication as to whether Spurs will now attempt to shift Lo Celso elsewhere before the window closes.
Arguably, the Londoners should try to keep hold of one of them as there isn’t much creativity in the squad without them.
