On the verge of signing Tanguy Ndombélé from Lyon for more than £50m, Tottenham have bolstered a much needed area of the pitch for next season.

Always looking a bit light in their midfield depth, Spurs addressed the situation in impressive fashion by getting a very coveted young player for a relatively reasonable fee.

On top of the Lyon midfielder, the club have the chance to get someone else who was offered to them, according to Corriere dello Sport, one with far more experience than the 22-year-old: Steven Nzonzi.

As late as January, Tottenham were being linked with the France international, who didn’t have the best of times in Rome, but nothing happened, as it always seemed like a guarantee the 30-year-old would finish his Serie A season.

However, thanks to the connections of Franco Baldini, the Italians offered their defensive midfielder’s services to Mauricio Pochettino and co.

Corriere state that, in truth, Tottenham are interested in Lorenzo Pellegrini, but the 23-year-old isn’t interested in leaving Roma just yet.

For now, the Premier League club are ‘reflecting’ on the possibility of signing Nzonzi, who already has a lot of experience in England’s top tier thanks to his time at Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City.

A (likely) cheap(ish), experienced option who wouldn’t take any time to adapt. What’s not to like?
