Tottenham edge closer to Tanguy Ndombele deal for club record fee

Tanguy Ndombele

Tanguy Ndombele

The 22-year-old Frenchman praised Tottenham last week in a short interview with French Publication Telefoot. "Which player would not be interested in a big club?"

The transfer of Jack Clarke to Tottenham Hotspur is dragging along nicely, but Leeds fans would be forgiven for being a little perplexed by the whole saga, given that it appears to be the only concrete evidence of any transfer activity at Elland Road so far this summer.

"If I wait eight more days it [the asking price] will be €80m", Aulas told RMC Sport.

Lyon want a package worth €80 million, including bonuses, but Spurs, who made an initial offer of €45m, are willing to pay €60m plus an additional €15m - an offer which should be enough to secure the player. We've held discussions since, but nothing is done.

"There is nothing done, I can assure you". Tanguy has demonstrated his qualities in the France team. "As for how much he's worth, I don't know, but he's worth more than €45m". Although, Lyon earlier reportedly reportedly wanted £70 million for Ndombele, and with Tottenham looking to pay £60 million, the two clubs have found a compromise.

Lampard won 11 major trophies, including three Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2012 during his 13 years at Chelsea.

'We really need substantial proposals to move forward on Tanguy's future, which will eventually require him to leave'.

"We should not say that [there is a deadline], but it's for good reason that we do not need any money until June 30 to present our accounts".

Meanwhile, Spurs continue to be linked with a move for another midfielder in the form of Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele.

During his two seasons with Lyon, Ndombele has featured 96 times for them, scoring four and assisting 16.
