Tanguy Ndombele joins Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur has completed the signing of Tanguy Ndombele for what’s believed to be a club-record fee. The French international central midfielder has signed a contract with Spurs until 2025.

The 22-year-old box-to-box midfielder joins Spurs on a five-year deal from French outfit Lyon, where he has impressed throughout the season.

He played 34 times for Lyon in the Ligue 1 last season, scoring one goal and creating seven. Having previously been on loan from Amiens, he made the switch permanent after being the mainstay in the heart of midfield.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aula described Tanguy as the ‘new Michael Essien’ when he was brought in to replace the Munich bound Tolisso.

An exciting prospect

Despite being unproven in the Premier League, Ndombele already has the elements of physicality to his game that will help him adjust to the pace of the English League.

And the midfielder is so much more than pace and power, with the ability to affect play in the final third and with as many assists in the previous 2 seasons as Spurs’ Dele Alli.

For nearly two years now, Spurs fans have been waiting for a marquee signing, someone to take us from also-rans into long-term title contenders. In Ndombele Spurs have found that player, and with rumours circulating about the potential addition of a playmaker to the squad, could this finally be the season that Poch breaks his trophy drought?
