Last Wednesday, we carried a report from Sport, who claimed Barcelona have identified Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele as an alternate transfer target, if they fail to sign Adrien Rabiot of Paris Saint-Germain or Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong.
The same publication now have an update about the midfielder in today’s edition of the newspaper.
It’s claimed Eric Abidal’s assistant Ramon Planes made a trip to France to watch him in action against Manchester City.
Ndombele has been one of the standout players in Ligue 1 this season and the La Liga winners have received positive reports regarding him, which is why Planes was sent to see him play on the biggest stage – the Champions League.
Abidal spent three years with the French outfit during his playing career and shares a good relationship with Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas, which could help Barca in signing the 21-year-old.
Another Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo also mentions that Ernesto Valverde’s side are interested in the player and his price tag would be around €65-€70m.
