Tanguy Ndombele shattered Tottenham’s previous transfer record and became their most expensive signing as well as their first singing in two seasons. The 23-year old, last played for French team Lyon, where it had become evident that he was one to look out for. Tottenham Chairman finally let loose his purse strings and he was bought for £55m with a further £10m in add-ons.
Ndombele is blessed with technique and power. This make him a very efficient box to box midfielder who can excel in both attack in defence. When out of possession, the Frenchman thrusts himself towards his opponents and challenges for the ball. When in possession, he drives his team forward relentlessly.
He is a midfielder that covers the midfield exceptionally well and controls the entire centre of the pitch. Ndombele is a brilliant buy by Spurs who may just give them the edge this campaign. However, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has advised fans to be patient with the new signing and give him the time to settle in the club.
