When Spurs failed to bring anyone into the club last summer transfer window it was seen by many observers as a mistake. This proved to be true to some extent, especially when injuries (Harry Kane) and loss of form (Kieran Trippier, Dele Alli) threatened to derail their season.
While Tottenham were able to push on to a Top 4 finish and a Champions League final place, the old adage that if you are not improving, then you are getting worse, did ring true.
This summer we expect to see Tottenham be much busier in the transfer market and one of their primary targets seems to be French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
Ndombele had a monster season for Lyon last term and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino seems to have taken notice. The North London club have reportedly offered Lyon £60 million for a player that they see as a replacement for Mousa Dembele in that jack-of-all-trades midfield role.
Ndombele is the primary summer pursuit for Spurs and Poch, and he will hope that signing the player will improve Spurs odds of winning the title (14.00) and finishing in the Top 4 (0.65), both with BetXChange.
