Tottenham are leading the race to sign combative midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon as they look to strengthen their midfield ahead of next season,

According to The Sun, the arrival of the 22- year old could mean the end of two Tottenham midfielders.

England's Eric Dier and Kenya's Victor Wanyama are the two players that could be sold.

This is because Wanyama has struggled with several injuries throughout the season while Dier also had his issues with an appendix surgery.

Ndombele, dubbed the next N'golo Kante, has impressed this season with his performances in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, making 49 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and contributing eight assists.

Liverpool and Manchester United are also understood to be interested in the talented midfielder, with Spurs reportedly leading the way for his signature, according to The Sun.
