Tottenham Hotspur officially announced the signing of Tanguy Ndombele on Tuesday.
The midfielder sealed what is reported to be a club-record £62 million transfer (BBC Sport).
The French ace had emerged as one of Europe’s most coveted players after a standout season in 2018/19.
22-year-old Ndombele impressed for Lyon in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League, and he became the subject of interest from many big clubs.
Tottenham staved off the competition though, and have secured themselves a coup.
And now, it will be interesting to see what his arrival will mean for one of the heroes of Tottenham’s 2018/19 campaign Moussa Sissoko.
Sissoko was sensational for the club last term, putting his early struggles at the club well and truly behind him.
The 29-year-old took advantage of an injury to Mousa Dembele and became the driving force of the team for Mauricio Pochettino.
His form saw him presented with the club’s inaugural Legends’ Player of the Season, underlining his amazing renaissance.
Sissoko was brilliantly effective operating from a deep midfield position alongside Harry Winks, but surely new signing Ndombele will go straight into the engine room.
Perhaps £80,000-a-week star Sissoko (Spotrac) will be moved back to a wide right position, which would be interesting since his latest role really seemed to get the best of him.
