Mauricio Pochettino wants the midfielder and the club will prioritise him before pursuing other deals
Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has admitted he is interested in a move to ‘big club’ Tottenham amid reports linking him with the north London outfit.
Mauricio Pochettino wants the France international and the club will prioritise him before pursuing other deals, though they face competition from Juventus and Manchester United.
Ndombele is a combative midfielder
The 22-year-old was also a target for Manchester City before they switched their attention to Atletico Madrid’s Rodri.
And speaking to Telefoot, Ndombele has admitted he would find it hard to resist a move to Spurs.
He said: “It’s true that Tottenham are a great team – a big club. They finished fourth in their league, they were finalists in the Champions League.
