Lyon star Tanguy Ndombele’s agent, Duro Ivanisevic, has stated that the Ligue 1 outfit will not sell his player for less than 80 million euros, Football.London reports.
Ndombele is one of the biggest prospects in European football and Lyon will make a hard bargain to keep the 21-year-old, however there could be slight room for negotiation.
Ndombele is strong in possession and good at winning the ball and driving forward with it and has many potential Premier League suitors.
Chelsea and Arsenal are both believed to be interested in the central midfielder with Blues boss Maurizio Sarri having previously stayed his need to add to his midfield options.
We have a lot of offensive midfielders and we have only [N’Golo] Kante as a defensive midfielder so it’s not easy now for the midfield to have the right balance.
If Aaron Ramsey is to leave Arsenal at the end of the season once his contract has expired, then the Gunners too may need to sign a central midfielder capable of replacing the Welshman, and Ndombele would appear to be a good fit for the North London outfit.
