Spurs have stepped up their pursuit of N’Dombele with their enquiry

Despite being at the young age of 21, French starlet N’Dombele has already managed to establish a first team place with the French side this season.

The former Amiens midfiedler played a part in 50 games in all competitions for the Ligue 1 giants this season, scoring one and assisting eight in the process.

The player played a big part in Lyon’s adventures in the Europa League, as his performances helped the club secure a place in the round of 16, where they eventually went out to Russian side CSKA Moscow.

If Spurs end up moving for N’Dombele, it remains to be seen whether £35M will be enough to pry the player away from Lyon.
