Tottenham are reportedly close to signing Lyon powerhouse Tanguy Ndombele – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter can’t wait to see him paired alongside Harry Winks in midfield.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio on his official website, Spurs are “on the verge” of wrapping up a deal for the 22-year-old.
The report details that a fee has been agreed for the Frenchman of around £55million plus bonuses and a move is close.
Ndombele is a central midfielder that has built up quite a reputation for himself in recent times and become a standout player for Lyon in France.
He’s an all-action midfielder that is a strong runner with the ball at his feet and can make a difference going forward, while he covers so much ground defensively too.
The France international looks a perfect fit for the Premier League with his pace and power, while he’s set to become the first Spurs signing since Lucas Moura back in January 2018.
A selection of Spurs fans are already dreaming about a combination of Ndombele next to England international Winks.
Winks, 23, is a pass master that is so clever in possession and would have a nice blend next to box-to-box Ndombele.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino is going to be left with a headache over who he starts in the centre of the park and it would be harsh if Moussa Sissoko is left out of the best XI after his performances last season.
The North London club also have the likes of Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama in contention to highlight a real strength in the midfield area.
Here are some Spurs fans discussing the possibility of Winks next to Ndombele:
