Tottenham's hopes of signing France international Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon have been given a boost.
Tanguy Ndombele fuelled talk of a transfer to Tottenham as he admitted the Premier League club is an appealing destination.
Spurs are reportedly leading the chase for 22-year-old midfielder Ndombele as they move to strengthen the squad that lost to Liverpool in the Champions League final.
Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked to the highly rated France international, who has impressed in his two seasons at Lyon.
Mauricio Pochettino's last signing was Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain in January 2018 and it appears as though his next recruit could also come from Ligue 1.
Spurs "a great team" - Ndombele
"It's a great team, a great club," Ndombele told Telefoot when asked about Tottenham.
"They finished fourth in their league and went to the final of the Champions League.
"Which player wouldn't be interested by a big club?"
Ndombele made 34 appearances as Lyon finished third in Ligue 1 last term.
The former Amiens man started France's friendly win over Bolivia and 4-0 defeat of Andorra in Euro 2020 qualifying in June.
